Pod 49: Making the Props from Scarlet to Terrahawks - Peter Holmes

Peter Holmes was prop master from Captain Scarlet until Space Precinct, and in this archive recording from 1992 he discusses his roles from those early days up to Terrahawks. Peter tells us how he made puppet furniture, small scale trees, and many other items which we all take for granted in many Gerry Anderson shows - but all were an essential part of building those incredible worlds.

Plus the usual news, Randomiser, the voice of the Podsterons and a discucssion about human hand bloopers!
