New Original Thunderbirds episodes

Sadly, I didn't manage to get my act together when the Kickstarter campaign was underway, but I was able to order the Blu-ray when some became available from the producers a few weeks back. I'm pleased that I did!

Got it yesterday and I'm thoroughly impressed. Was like jumping back in time. Making visual what was originally just an audio presentation, was a stroke of genius and they did as superb job. Getting clearances for the use of original footage weaved into the storyline just makes it even more authentic.

We'll probably not see anything like this ever again. It's a shame I couldn't have been part of the production as a backer. That must be a real thrill for those that did to know they are part of TV history!

All in though, this is one Blu-ray that will never be leaving for eBay!

Now that the TB65 episodes are out and about, the reviews are coming in...! :clap:

These have arrived in my recent e-mail (via the GA website newsletter); perhaps some hereabouts have seen them as well...

Interesting. I saw a load of them at a Toy Collectors Fair at the NEC in Birmingham - all copies.

I just had an update email from The Kickstarter guys, detailing the fact they are still up to things, some interesting pics (and a Lego Thunderbird 1 LOL!), so I've PDF'd the email and added it here...

Thanks for the PDF.

I do wish there was a legitimate way to buy copies of the Thunderbirds 1965 episodes!

Thunderbirds Day - 1 Week Away!


Posted by Stephen La Rivière
Sep 22, 2019



Hello!
Just a brief update to remind everyone that our Thunderbirds Day live YouTube stream is fast approaching - and once again we've been privileged to produce new Thunderbirds in association with ITV. Filmed in Supermarionation, naturally.

The day will represent a chance not only to see the 50th anniversary episodes, but three brand new adaptations of the mini-albums for Trapped in the Sky, End of the Road and Vault of Death. Additionally, we'll be presenting interviews, archive footage and brand new idents to link the programmes together.

The stream kicks off on the Century 21 Films YouTube Channel on September 30th at 9am UK time and runs on a loop until midnight. And, as the 30th is a Monday, we're rerunning the stream the following weekend on the 5th and 6th October (again 9am until midnight) - so hopefully everyone will get a chance to tune in.

You can keep up-to-date with the latest developments via our Facebook Page and Twitter Account.
You can also find out more information about our current work on our website Century 21 Films.

September 30th also marks our fifth anniversary! Filmed in Supermarionation was premiered at the BFI on September 30th 2014. And we're pleased to say that our Supermarionation work continues. Not only are we working on Thunderbirds Day, but we have new productions in the pipeline too.

We hope to bring you more information on our new projects soon. After years of getting to this point, we hope that the next production will be the one we've been working towards all this time.

That's all for now.
Hope to see you all on Thunderbirds Day!
Over and out...

I have to say, this is Fanderson through and through.
There are many people that feel aggrieved by that bunch, and all this "exclusive" stuff makes a rod for their own back.

People don't want to join their little clique, and then La Rivière and co wonder why their stuff gets pirated.

Either make the stuff available to the general public or suffer the consequences.
