Boy George looks back on the most decadent disco in history: Studio 54, which became a symbol of the disco era.

It was the world's first super club, the first night spot to become a household name and the spawning ground of today's celebrity culture.

Featuring interviews with socialite Carmen D'Alessio, Studio DJ Nicky Siano, Nile Rodgers from Chic, roller skating drag queen Rollerena and bartenders and dancers.
