This is currently re-airing in remastered High Definition on the SyFy Channel during the early hours. Apart from the wires being more noticeable than ever before, it looks fantastic.

ITV Studios have released a sneak preview of the new Thunderbird 1 which will feature in their hotly anticipated new show Thunderbirds Are Go!

Set against the backdrop of the Hollywood sign the rocket maintains its distinctive silver bullet style which many fans will remember from the original series.

The major new children’s series is set to make its international debut in early 2015 in the UK on ITV and CITV.

Giles Ridge, the show's executive producer said: 'Thunderbirds Are Go! pays tribute to the original series whilst delivering a dynamic action-adventure to thrill a new generation.

'The iconic characters, craft, music and story elements of the original have been lovingly re-imagined for a 21st century audience.

He added: 'The series will showcase the world famous Pukeko Pictures and Weta Workshop's ground-breaking creative and technical excellence.'

The action-packed reboot will be produced using a unique mix of CGI animation and live-action model sets to deliver a new level of action-adventure animation whilst also paying tribute to the classic 1960s phenomenon.

The re-invention of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson’s series will star Rosamund Pike (Pride and Prejudice, Gone Girl) as Lady Penelope and original cast member David Graham who reprises his role as Parker.

Other star voices will include Kayvan Novak (Fonejacker, Facejacker) as inventor Brains and Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Game of Thrones, Love Actually) voicing John Tracy.

Thunderbirds is a co-production between ITV Studios and Pukeko Pictures in association with world-famous Weta Workshop (The Lord of the Rings, Avatar).

I know one of the writers on this, I worked with him not so long ago. It might be good, but my worry is that it's going to be too 'childish'. Thunderbirds is from a time when 'kids' shows didn't have to play it safe.

Cue Blue Peter building more Tracy Islands and putting all our shitty efforts to shame.
Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.
