Pod 220: Thunderbirds Inspired Me to Become a Designer

Neil Poulton salutes the design prowess of Century 21 Productions' Derek Meddings and Mike Trim. It was their work on Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet that would inspire him to go into graphic design, where he was recognized by Time Magazine as one of the 100 people and ideas influencing modern design. His iconic rugged hard drive concept was a favourite of Gerry Anderson himself and was inspired by the Spectrum Pursuit Vehicle!

Playing Officer Orrin in Gerry Anderson's last live action series 'Space Precinct' clearly wasn't enough to put Richard off the worlds of Gerry Anderson!

As well as co-hosting the Gerry Anderson Podcast and the almost-monthly Facebook, Twitch, Periscope and Youtube broadcast, FabLive, Richard has also taken parts in the audio series 'Terrahawks' and the pilot minisode for the forthcoming 'Gerry Anderson's Firestorm'.
