Thunderbirds are go again! Twenty-six years after the classic puppet saga was first broadcast, all 32 original episodes are being screened again. The 1960s James Bond spoof about the members of International Rescue was created by animator Gerry Anderson, who also made "Captain Scarlet" and "Stingray". The 20-inch puppets cost Â£300 each and are brought to life by wires one five-thousandth of an inch thick (but you can still see every one of them!).
In the very first episode of "Thunderbirds", the evil Hood plants a bomb on board Fireflash, an atomic-powered supersonic airliner on its maiden flight from London.

Another chance to savour some remarkable nature photography with the six-part documentary series that looks at the world from the animal's angle. Tonight: fly with migrating geese or swim with sharks and dolphins. Narrated by Andrew Sachs. And watch out for more magic from an animal's view in November with a new series, Lifesense, which - thanks to some sophisticated technical wizardry - assesses how animals relate to humans.
Producer John Downer
