"Stand By For Action!!"
In the 1960's to the 1970's in the UK, Gerry Anderson produced an incredible line of science-fiction TV programmes that kept the youth of the nation excited and enthralled.
Starting with crude marionettes, he applied electronics and space-age materials to create advanced puppetry techniques that he termed "Supermarionation". Gerry and his then-wife Sylvia were inspired by a mining disaster to create "Thunderbirds", a story about a secret organisation, named "International Rescue", that used its advanced technology to rescue the victims of disaster. He went on to produce live-action SFTV favourites "UFO" and "Space:1999".
Steve Dix is here to guide you through the history of Gerry Anderson productions, including his masterwork, "Thunderbirds".
