The Mysterons - S1-E1

Corrected entry: A mid-1960s stock photo of New York is used as an establishing shot of that city, with the Empire State Building visible. However, the events of this series are set in the same world as the Thunderbirds, and take place in the year 2068. The Empire State Building was destroyed at least three years earlier (in 2065), in the Thunderbirds episode "Terror In New York City."

Correction: International Rescue (Thunderbirds) are never referenced in Captain Scarlett and The Mysterons, and vice-versa. Jusr because they are made by the same company and set in roughly the same time there is nothing in either show to suggest that they are set in the same world.

As Delta Tango 19 takes off from the airport, there is a shot where it is actually landing. This can be seen from the fact that there is no runway behind them, as it is in front of them.



When the Captain Scarlet series was sold to TV broadcasters, ITC (who had backed and then marketed the series) issued a "recommended broadcast order". This was not always the same order as the episodes had been made. Episodes 1 to 4 were made and broadcast "in sequence", but from episode 5 this no longer applied. Episode 11 ("Avalanche") was the 5th to be broadcast, swapping places with the episode "Point 783" which was the 5th to be made, but the 11th to be broadcast.
