6ft ant is BBC's latest TV monster (1965)

[edit]

The BBC unveiled yesterday its latest monsters. They are Zarbis, giant fibre glass ants, six feet tall, which will make their television debut on Feb. 13 in the new Dr. Who series, "The Web Planet."

Mr. Bill Stratton, who wrote the series, said yesterday that the monsters would have a different sinister quality to the Daleks, which had been so popular with children in previous serials. They would not be so horrifying but perhaps a little frightening. Unlike the Daleks, they will not speak. They communicate through high-pitched chirping some rather like crickets.
