New Thunderbirds revives Brains role chance for Archigram star

  • Comment

The keenly anticipated return of the 1960s science fiction puppet TV show Thunderbirds seems likely to presage renewed interest in the antics of one of its contemporaries, the pop architectural group Archigram

The show may be of particular interest to one of its ringleaders, Brains lookalike Peter Cook, whose students are said to have awarded him with his very own Thunderbirds puppet. A reference to the comedian Peter Cook’s Thunderbirds spoof perhaps.

Could a contract with the BBC be a possibility for the veteran architect-academic? Watch out for approaching Walking Cities and Sidewinders.
