This week in Gerry Anderson news!

Boosters and circuits are all checked – it must be time for the Gerry Anderson news roundup!

This week’s edition of the Gerry Anderson Podcast launched on Sunday evening, and featured the second part of an interview with UFO actress Georgina Moon! If you prefer to stick with traditional audio-only rather than our new and improved video format you can still catch it (and all other previous episodes) every week either through our website or via your podcast platform of choice.

Also new this week over on the Gerry Anderson Randomiser Podcast (also available on all podcast platforms) you’d best watch out because Torchy the Battery Boy is in a generous mood, as Pilliwig Gets a Present!

Ever wondered how closely the world of Fireball XL5 resembles real-world space developments of the 1960s? We investigated this week in a new article!

Ever wondered what influence the earlier Anderson shows had on Thunderbirds? We dug into the history of it in this week’s Thunderbirds Thursday article!

Popular Anderson episodes that first aired in the UK this week in years past include Fireball XL5‘s Robert to the Rescue (March 17th 1963), ThunderbirdsMartian Invasion (March 17th 1966), Supercar‘s Atomic Witch Hunt (March 18th 1962), New Captain Scarlet‘s Mercury Falling (March 19th 2005), Stingray‘s Stand by for Action (March 21st 1965) and Captain Scarlet‘s Codename Europa (March 21st 1968).

We’ll be back next weekend with another Gerry Anderson news roundup – so until then, stand by for a very special announcement…
