FILMED IN SUPERMARIONATION
6.30PM, FOXTEL ARTS
Gerry and Sylvia Anderson began making puppet TV shows for kids in the late ‘50s. They soon realised it allowed them to make feature film-level storylines with spaceships, submarines and explosions on a small-screen budget in shows including Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet. Fascinating archival footage, new interviews and recreations of the effects, narrated by Sylvia (Lady Penelope) herself.
