The Barry Gray Orchestra – Thunderbirds (1966)

For gentlemen of a certain age, the Thunderbirds theme tune will always be associated with some wonderful childhood memories. Composed, arranged and produced by Barry Gray who was a long time collaborator with the late, great, Gerry Anderson whose death was announced yesterday.

Thunderbirds was a complete package – from the genius of Gerry Anderson’s “supermarionation” used to produce the TV shows (as well as Stingray, Fireball XL5, Joe 90 and Captain Scarlet) through to the Matchbox diecast models of all the Thunderbird craft and the fantastic theme tune; this was children’s TV of the best sort.

A clip from the opening of one of the Thunderbirds episodes and then the theme in its full majesty.
