From Amazon.co.uk

"Filmed in VIDECOLOR [explosions, drum roll, music builds to a climax] and SUPERMARIONATION"! The opening sequence of Thunderbirds is itself a masterclass in Gerry Anderson's marionette hyperbole: who else would dare to make a virtue out of the fact that (a) the show is in colour and (b) it's got puppets in it? But everything about this series really is epic: Thunderbirds is action on the grandest scale, pre-dating such high-concept Hollywood vehicles as Armaggedon by 30 years and more (the acting is better, too), and fetishising gadgets in a way that even the most excessive Bond movies could never hope to rival. Unsurprisingly, it transpires that the visual effects are by Derek Meddings, whose later contributions to Bond movies like The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker echo his pioneering model work here.

As to the characters, the clean-cut Tracey boys take second place in the audiences' affections to their cool machines--the real stars of the show--while comic relief is to be found in the charming company of Lady Penelope and her pink Rolls (number plate FAB1), driven by lugubrious chauffeur Parker, whose "Yes, milady" catch phrase resonated around school playgrounds for decades. (Spare a thought for poor old John Tracey, stuck up in space on Thunderbird 5 with only the radio for company.) The puppet stunt-work is breathtakingly audacious, and every week's death-defying escapade is nail-bitingly choreographed in the very best tradition of disaster movies. First shown in 1964 and now digitally remastered, Thunderbirds is children's TV that still looks and sounds like big-budget Hollywood.

On this DVD: The four episodes are: "The Man from MI5", "Cry Wolf", "Danger at Ocean Deep" and "Move and You're Dead".

Product Description

Closing sixteen episodes of Gerry Anderson's cult Supermarionation series. In 'The Man from MI5', Lady Penelope finds herself in deadly danger when she follows the trail of a missing British spy. 'Cry Wolf' sees Thunderbird 1 drawn to a false alarm when two Australian boys play at International Rescue. In 'Danger at Ocean Deep', the Thunderbirds investigate the disappearance of a missing tanker and its potentially explosive cargo. 'Move and You're Dead' finds Alan and Grandma trapped on a bridge girder with a bomb following the former's triumph in the Parola Sands motor race. In 'The Duchess Assignment', Lady Penelope's Duchess friend is kidnapped and held to ransom en route to selling a valuable painting. 'Brink of Disaster' sees Jeff, Tin-Tin and Brains trapped on a deadly monorail when they investigate a crooked tycoon. In 'Attack of the Alligators!', four men are trapped by giant alligators after accidentally spilling a growth formula into the nearby swamp. 'Martian Invasion' sees the International Rescue team filmed by the Hood after rescuing two actors trapped in a cave. In 'The Cham Cham', Lady Penelope and Tin-Tin go undercover in the music business when a series of American rocket crashes coincide with performances by pop group the Cass Carnaby Five. 'Security Hazard' sees Jeff become apopleptic when a young boy stows away aboard Thunderbird 2 and observes International Rescue in action. In 'Atlantic Inferno', Scott is left in charge when Jeff goes on holiday, and has to decide what to do when a nearby oil rig catches fire. 'Path of Destruction' sees the team racing to halt the carnage being created by an out-of-control, atomic-powered tree-logger. In 'Alias Mr Hackenbacker', Lady Penelope contacts Thunderbirds when the plane she is travelling on is hijacked by criminals. 'Lord Parker's 'Oliday' sees Parker helping to avert chaos when the solar-powered Mediterranean resort of Monte Bianco loses its reflector in a storm. In 'Ricochet', Tin-Tin discovers that an orbiting TV station has been damaged by a rogue space rocket, and will explode upon re-entering Earth's atmosphere. 'Give or Take a Million' sees a pair of crooks' planned robbery going awry when they become trapped in a children's hospital.

It seems that any Thunderbirds review appears for all Thunderbirds products, which can be more than somewhat confusing! This review relates specifically to Thunderbirds: Collection Part 2 (Vols 5-8) [DVD] [1965] with the picture of Brains, Lady Penelope and Parker. The "product description" is accurate - this is the last 16 episodes. At the price I paid it is fantastic value.
