From Gerry Anderson’s Thunderbirds; six 1990 postcards featuring the Tracy brothers & Lady Penelope, all featuring shots taken from the show’s original title sequence. Just a few years after these were printed by Engale Marketing, the original episodes would return to the UK’s TV screens and the programme experience a highly unlikely Indian summer of success. (Some sense of how absurdly popular the show unexpectedly became can be gathered from this 1993 video of then-Blue Peter presenter Anthea Turner as she shows how to build a model of Tracy Island from everyday objects.)
