Thunderbirds: music by Barry Gray (CD review).

As according to the bumf supplied with the CD and blue vinyl versions of this new version of the 1966 ‘Thunderbirds’ sound music by Barry Gray, the 19 episodes represented here are not in order but more with what would make a good mix. I can live with that. The mix is actually very satisfying […]

Calling International Rescue: an article by: GF Willmetts.

My Favourite Photograph: Thunderbird 2 Landing At London Airport – hopefully one of a series by: GF Willmetts (article)
