‘Give or Take a Million’ (TV)


Please feel free to comment on my review.

The last episode of ‘Thunderbirds’ is the series’ first and only Christmas Special. In this episode, two criminals attempt to burgle a high-tech vault at a children’s hospital. They get trapped inside a rocket with a pod full of presents for the children, one that is a prize to visit Tracy Island.

The SUPER FEATURES on Disc 8 of the ‘Thunderbirds’ Complete Series DVD are as follows. There is a ‘F.A.B. Fact File’ on the Behind-The-Scenes of ‘Thunderbirds’; a companion featurette looking into the ‘Thunderbirds Secrets’, and a ‘Thunderbirds Rom’ feature showing an in-depth image of Lady Penelope’s mansion to access on your PC/laptop.


Disc 9 of the ‘Thunderbirds’ Complete Series DVD contains the complete behind-the-scenes documentary looking into the series of ‘Thunderbirds’. It is divided into chapters including ‘5…4…3…2…1…’ (the opening); ‘The Thunderbirds Companion’ (the intro); the machines; the characters; the secrets and an original archive ‘making of…’ footage of ‘Thunderbirds’ made in 1965. This documentary is presented by Brains himself (voiced by David Graham) and features interviews with many cast and crew members of ‘Thunderbirds’ including co-creator Gerry Anderson, voice artist David Graham, writer and director Alan Pattillo, production designer Bob Bell, etc. I enjoyed watching this documentary in full, giving lots of behind-the-scenes info and trivia about the making of the series. Seeing Brains presenting the bits for the kids was very amusing and enjoyable to watch indeed.

‘Give or Take a Million’ rating – 8/10
