This week in Gerry Anderson News

Red alert – confirming the latest edition of the Gerry Anderson news roundup!

This week’s edition of the Gerry Anderson Podcast launched on Monday, and featured the second half of an interview with Scott Evans and Scott Tempest-Mitchell of ITV Content Services who discuss their work on the recent HD upscale of Space Precinct! 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 crew of the Altares braved the unknown in a special one-off pilot film from 1975, The Day After Tomorrow/Into Infinity!

On Wednesday this week’s FAB Fact video examined the influence of such Anderson shows as Supercar, Captain Scarlet and Thunderbirds on Japanese anime, from advanced technology and equipment to character and vehicle inspirations! Watch the video to find out more!

With summer now upon us, the Official Gerry Anderson Store is offering a new line of Thunderbirds-inspired beach towels, created by the good folks at Huub! Show your support for International Rescue with a choice of towels featuring Thunderbirds 1, 2 or 4 designs!

Also now available to pre-order from the Gerry Anderson Store is a new one off pressing of 1000 copies worldwide of the Joe 90 theme on 7″ vinyl, as performed by the Barry Gray Orchestra. Arguably the most iconic of the Barry Gray themes, and one that stands up not only as an outstanding theme but also an outstanding piece of music in its own right, this new release of the theme also features the popular track ‘Balloon Ride’ from the episode Project 90 on the B-side.

Space Precinct actor David Quilter celebrated his birthday on Sunday June 11th, sharing a birthday with the late Captain Scarlet and UFO star Ed Bishop, while popular episodes that first aired in the UK this week in years past include Fireball XL5’s The Fire Fighters (June 16th 1963), Stingray‘s Hostages of the Deep (June 13th 1965), TerrahawksJolly Roger One (June 14th 1986) and Supercar’s The Lost City (June 17th 1961).

That’s all we have for this week – see you for more next weekend!
