Following filming of a flying stunt on M40 motorway in Buckinghamshire (which was newly completed but not yet open to traffic) Joan Hughes (pilot of the Tiger Moth) was charged but later acquitted of seven counts of dangerous flying when the 'plane failed to make contact with the surface of the while passing under a bridge. A crosswind had prevented Hughes from landing the plane on the road before passing under the bridge as stipulated as a condition of permission to use the location. Norman Foster (who supervised the shooting of this scene) was also charged but acquitted of three counts of aiding and abetting. In addition to the court case filming permission was revoked immediately, leading to the sequence being completed with a miniature set of the site and the model aircraft used for other flying sequences.

It is stated by Scott that the towers that the airship is about to crash into are five miles east of Dover, while showing some very nice pictures of the English countryside. The only problem is that five miles east of Dover is in the English Channel almost a quarter of the way to Calais as the ferry sails. That is unless by 2068 an artificial piece of land has been placed there. See more »


Narrator: A beautiful island in the Pacific, secret base of International Rescue, so far undetected. Outwardly, the luxury home of millionaire ex-astronaut Jeff Tracy.

Sylvia Anderson's DVD Commentary Is Outstanding!
29 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

The only way to watch this movie is with the commentary! Sylvia Anderson gives Gerry Anderson fans so many trivia bits about the puppet shows and live action shows of later years. But more importantly, she gives the thumbs up about a visit she made to Australia some time in the 1980s or 1990s.

We get these showbiz types appearing around the world and I often suspect that they are just here for the money. End of story. Wrong. In the DVD Sylvia explains how she enjoyed Sydney and Perth and meeting the fans. She explains that she went on TV and radio in Oz (where was I? I missed it?) and she even remembers that Thunderbirds was in constant re-run in Oz at 6am. And she mentions Oz voice artists.
