The World of Gerry Anderson

The World of Gerry Anderson

5…,4…,3…2…,1… Thunderbirds are Go!!. Those opening words are from one of the most action pack shows on British Television The Thunderbirds, by producer Gerry Anderson. Even though they were puppets. No! they were Super Marionettes. Gerry Anderson and his team of special effects wizards that included Derek Meddings created special effects that paved they way for Star Wars, Star Trek and the James Bond films. Brit TV Entertainment and our online partner TLA Video pays tribute to The World of Gerry Anderson. “Now Stand by for action anything can happen in the next half hour”.
