Filmed in Supermarionation (2014)
Director - Stephen La Rivière
Aces documentary about Gerry and Sylvia Anderson’s groundbreaking puppet shows (Stingray, Captain Scarlet, Thunderbirds etc). If you’re a fan then this is essential viewing since just about every name you can remember from the end credits of those shows is interviewed. From the steamboat Mickey like beginnings of Torchy, the Battery Boy right the way up to the disastrous The Secret Service, pretty much everything is covered in as much detail as you’ll ever need. If you’re not a fan then stay away as this will probably bore you rigid.
