Extract from Peter Thursby by Vivienne Light and Simon Olding. ''The descriptive title of 'Podmen' came about as Thursby observed 'little men on scaffolding constructing buildings. They appeared to be framed in boxes like peas in a pod...therefore the name Podmen arose'. As the series progressed so Podmen began to emerge climbing, falling, ascending, descending, whirling and rotating on external surfaces. 'Looking Forward', commissioned by Exeter City Council, was the beginning of Podman's escape from restricted compartments towards final release.''.
