An advert for Clarksons European package holidays by Tristar jet with a very 1970's feel with scenes of people holidaying on the beach and at a hotel, followed by a display of the onboard comforts of the TriStar jet, owned by Court Line airlines.

Close-up of suntanned thighs, white bikini bottoms - the woman applies suntan cream first to thigh, then upper arm, then stomach. Cut to a waiter's hand about to pour a bottle of champagne, then back to the woman, who lies back on a sandy beach, with her arms behind her head. She is wearing a white bikini, has blonde hair and is very darkly tanned. Waiter's hand pouring glasses of champagne on a tabletop. View of holidaymakers - two men and two women - seated round the table, it looks like they're on the terrace of a hotel - the sea is visible in the background. They are dressed fairly casually in 70's style clothes - one man sports a full beard, the other shoulder-length hair. Soundtrack consists of a contemporary song eg of lyics "I'm kicking off those winter chills - I'm paying no more doctor's bills". Close-ups of each woman drinking the champagne, looking very relaxed.
