The Brains Behind Thunderbirds
Documentary featuring clips from the series.
A GREAT introduction for kids who haven't seen Thunderbirds yet.
An ideal overview of the show's premise
The Brains Behind Thunderbirds is an ideal overview of the show's premise--both for the generations of kids growing up ready to embrace it, and for the generations who have already grown up, but would welcome a reminder. From a secret laboratory somewhere on Tracy Island, stuttering science genius Brains is your host. In the course of the hour-long documentary, the viewer is introduced to each of International Rescue's gadget-tastic vehicles. There's the 15,000 mph Thunderbird 1 rocket piloted by Scott Tracy; the freight-carrying Thunderbird 2 with its six different rescue machine pods piloted by brother Virgil; the space rocket Thunderbird 3 with Alan Tracy at the helm; sub-aquatic Thunderbird 4 with Gordon Tracy aboard; and the orbiting space station Thunderbird 5 overseen by a rather solitary John Tracy. Brains then introduces us properly to each of the brothers, their father Jeff, gorgeous London agent Lady Penelope and her butler Parker, and even warns us about their deadly enemy, The Hood. Lots of clips illustrate the vehicles' capabilities and characters' personalities. Although there's little on offer not already known to die-hard fans, it's an ideal no-strings-attached crash course introduction for everyone else.
