Trivia

The original 16mm master negatives for the series are no longer believed to exist, or at least their whereabouts are currently unknown. The distributors only hold 1 inch video transfers taken from the masters and duplicates in the 1980s. This means that there could be some material missing from installments in circulation (the first two episodes are known to be affected by cuts). However, London Weekend Television retain the majority of their 16mm transmission prints which may contain any omitted footage, whilst some effects work and title sequence material (on 35mm film) are known to survive.

Why is this not a cult?
14 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

I have recently bought all the re-released Terrahawks programmes on DVD and I think its great. I never really liked Thunderbirds as it seemed a bit bland, but this has a continuous theme going throughout the shows.

Just a quick thought, what is Gerry Andersons obsession with Mars, I mean first it was the Mysterons and now its Zelda and her rabble.

Strange.
