HOT OFF THE PRESS: Sylvia Anderson is delighted that CITV commission yet another series of Thunderbirds
Sylvia Anderson speaks out as we recite the 50th Anniversary of Thunderbirds:
‘I always had a good feeling when creating thunderbirds with Gerry. Firstly it fulfilled all my dreams about having hour long episodes. I had for a number of years been driving Sir Lewis Grade crazy about having longer time slots for the series. I knew that the only way I could develop the characters would be to give them real personality as in the case of Lady Penelope for example. She became a real person little did I know she would become an icon. FAB’
CITV have already put requests in for the NEW Thunderbirds Are Go! series to continue into 2016 and 2017 even before it’s first launch in Spring this year.
