This week in Gerry Anderson News

It’s been another week of fab action in the Anderson universe – here’s all the things you might have missed!

This week’s edition of the Gerry Anderson Podcast launched on Monday, and featured the first half of an interview with Thunderbirds audio drama voice artist Joe Jameson! If you missed this week’s episode you can catch it (and all other previous episodes) 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) the Supercar team made movie magic and undercovered an espionage ring, in the episode Supercar “Take One”!

On Wednesday this week’s FAB Fact video went live, looking at the influence of Airfix and Revell model kits on the production of Space:1999!

The popularity of the recent archive podcast interview with Century 21 Merchandising head Keith Shackleton inspired a new video series over on the Official Gerry Anderson YouTube channel, and from today you can watch all parts of this feature as a single 35-minute video!

The special reduced pre-order pricing for the Joe 90 Technical Operations Manual has now end, but the book is still available to order at full price if you haven’t yet secured your copy!

We’re also saying goodbye to a range of ten t-shirts and hoodies at midnight UK time on Easter Monday – browse the collection here before they’re gone for good!

Celebrating birthdays this week were The Protectors and Space:1999 star Yasuko Nagazumi (April 4th) and Doppelgänger star Roy Thinnes (April 6th), while on his April 3rd birthday we also remembered the late Graydon Gould who voiced Mike Mercury in all 39 episodes of Supercar. Popular Anderson episodes that first aired in the UK this week in years past include Stingray‘s The Disappearing Ships (April 4th 1965), Captain Scarlet’s The Launching (April 2nd 1968), and Fireball XL5‘s Drama at Space City (April 7th 1963).

That’s all the news for this week – but stand by for more action next week, as we celebrate the anniversary of Gerry Anderson birth with a week full of fab freebies and exciting special announcements in the lead up to Gerry Anderson Day on April 14th!
