Thunderbirds

Scope and Content

Contains materials related to the television series Thunderbirds, created by Sylvia and Gerry Anderson, which aired in 1965-1966, lasting two series.

It contains a list of the characters and episodes for which Joy created puppet heads, with film frames and photographic material of a selection of her work. Also included are a scrapbook and comic. [The scrapbook pre-dates her work on Thunderbirds which started in 1964, but was used as inspiration and was added to for her work on the television series.] The materials show the development of ideas and a sample of the puppets created.
