Cult sf series Terrahawks: Volume 1 on Blu-ray and DVD in July

27 May 2016

Gerry Anderson, the hugely influential creator of Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet and Space: 1999 made a spectacular return to puppet animation in the early 1980s with a new series co-created with Christopher Burr. Thrilling yet another generation of children (and adults!), Terrahawks introduced a new elite force to defend 21st century Earth against a host of alien invaders.

Led by the heroic Tiger Ninestein, the Terrahawks crew consists of Captain Mary Falconer, his acting second-in-command; fighter-pilot and former pop star Kate Kestrel; the poetically inclined Lieutenant Hiro; and Lt. Hawkeye – the gunner with computer-enhanced vision. Assisted by a legion of charismatic spherical robots known as the Zeroids, they battle a cabal of evil adversaries – none more terrifying than android crone Zelda, the would-be conqueror of all "Earth-Scum"!
