Building hope out of tragedy! Gerry Anderson served in the military and lost his brother Lionel in World War II. But Lionel was never forgotten and served as the inspiration for the pilots of shows like Thunderbirds. Military historian Peter Caddick-Adams and Jamie Anderson discuss how Gerry's frustration with military life led to the creation of fictional para-military organisations where the mission was always to save lives!
