The Art of Mike Trim

Hey, when Brian Fies and I were in Forbidden Planet on Tuesday, we saw this cool new book THE ART OF MIKE TRIM.

Mike Trim designed for a lot of those Gerry & Sylvia Anderson shows: THUNDERBIRDS, UFO, SPACE:1999. There is a promo for his new book, which has tons of sketches and photos, on YouTube.

The music on that promo is from the UFO TV series, and was written by Barry Grey. Great stuff.

And just for fun, here are a couple more links at YouTube: the theme from the UFO TV show, complete with titles and all of the ships and explosions is here -- and someone's edited together a revised STAR TREK TOS title sequence to the Barry Grey music and it works quite well.
