About this deal

For the first time, a complete history of the Gerry and Sylvia Anderson television productions which pioneered science-fiction special effects. In 2015, the works of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson continued to be recognised by the Cult TV Awards, with Steve Zodiac from Fireball XL5 added to the Hall of Fame for 'Animated Character', actress Wanda Ventham, one of the female leads in UFO, added to the Actress Hall of Fame, and the documentary "Filmed in Supermarionation" was hailed as the 'Blu-ray/DVD Presentation of the Year'. David Graham was later interviewed and also talked about the story about the Pub and waiter who helped him invent the voice for Parker. Scott Tracy is modelled after Sean Connery, who was James Bond in the years Thunderbirds was in production and originally on air.

Filmed in Supermarionation is a 2014 documentary film about Gerry Anderson, Sylvia Anderson and the struggling group of filmmakers who found success producing space-age puppet television series such as Supercar, Joe 90, Fireball XL5, Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons and Thunderbirds. The book also covers the Anderson's efforts from the beginning including Torchy and Four Feather Falls.

Directed by Stephen La Rivière, and based on his book of the same name, the film was favorably received by critics. This full-color art book is packed with hundreds of never-before-seen production photos, artwork, and illustrations making this the definitive book on the subject.

It perhaps would have been interesting to hear more about their legacy, films like Team America: World Police were clearly very inspired by Thunderbirds in particular.
