Pod 195: Stuart Woodhead and Puppetry Legends

Stuart Woodhead is an author and custodian-in-chief of the Joy Laurey Archive. Who was Joy Laurey, you may ask? Stu’s new book provides the answer with an in-depth look at one of Britain’s great puppeteers who created beloved characters such as Mr. Turnip on the BBC’s Whirligig. Most notably to Anderfans, she built the original Twizzle puppet and recruited the team that would remain with Gerry for the bulk of his career. Don’t miss this insightful trip to the roots of the Supermarionation family tree. Plus, a paranoid FAB Fact, Quick Fire Five action, a two-parter begins in the Randomiser, and a bumper crop of Gerry Anderson News! Don’t forget to subscribe and share this podcast with other fans!
