Jeez, that looks cool. A pity there’s no way I can get to Bristol on Dec 1. :(

Have you guys been following Thunderbirds ‘65? It’s a Kickstarter project to create 3 new puppet episodes using the soundtracks from audio-only recordings made in the sixties. The Abominable Snowman and Welcome to Tracy Island have already been shot, And The Stately Homes Robberies is currently being films by original series director David Lane.

The stills from the production look incredible: I can’t wait to see the finished product!
