Gerry Anderson Podcast Pod 159 – Samira Ahmed

Journalist and broadcaster Samira Ahmed first appeared on The Gerry Anderson Podcast in 2019 alongside fellow Space:1999 enthusiast Kevin Fong. This time, she turns her enthusiastic eye to Gerry’s earlier live-action sci-fi programme – UFO! In part one of her new interview, Samira’s witty and intelligent analysis covers the character of Ed Straker, the military mindset, the link between Ayshea and David Bowie, and much more!
