30 Minutes After Noon is the 18th produced, and the 7th broadcast, episode of the British television series Thunderbirds.
Hudson Building employee Tom Prescott is forced by the Erdman Gang to set an explosive device in the building, so as to destroy extensive files on their criminal organisation. But when the device detonates - turning the entire structure into a raging inferno - he's trapped in one of its elevators!
International Rescue is summoned, and manages to get the wounded Prescott out safely...or so it's believed, until a subsequent news story reports that he died!
But there's much more to all this than meets the eye, and the Erdman Gang's murderous agenda is far from over...
