List of Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons episodes

"Winged Assassin" is the second episode of the Supermarionation television series Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons. It was first broadcast in the UK on 6 October 1967 (1967-10-06) on ATV Midlands. It was written by Tony Barwick and directed by David Lane. In this episode, Captain Scarlet establishes his indestructibility as Spectrum tries to prevent the Mysterons from assassinating the Director General of the United Asian Republic.

Due to similarities between the plotline and the September 11 attacks, "Winged Assassin" was held back in the BBC Two transmission schedule when Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons was re-run on British television in 2001. Footage from "Winged Assassin" was re-edited and included in the Captain Scarlet compilation film Captain Scarlet vs the Mysterons in 1980.

Famous quotes containing the word winged:

    The beasts, the fishes, and the winged fowls
    Are their males’ subjects and at their controls:
    Man, more divine, the master of all these,
    Lord of the wide world and wild watery seas,
    Indued with intellectual sense and souls,
    Of more pre-eminence than fish and fowls,
    Are masters to their females, and their lords:
    Then let your will attend on their accords.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
