This week in Gerry Anderson News

It’s been another bumper week of excitement in our corner of the Anderson universe – here’s all the things you need to know!

Last Sunday was Mother’s Day in the UK – hope you remembered! We took a look back at the mother figures seen across the Anderson universe in a new article – did we miss out any of your favourites?

This week’s edition of the Gerry Anderson Podcast launched on Monday with the second part of an interview with author Andrew E.C. Gaska regarding Space:1999, and his upcoming graphic novel  based on the series To Everything That Was – which is still available to pre-order from the Official Gerry Anderson Store! 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) Father Unwin faced peril in a health farm and on the race track, in The Secret Service episode The Cure!

On Wednesday this week’s FAB Fact video went live, looking at the time Mad Magazine ran a parody of Space:1999 in which the crew of Moonbase Alpha crossed paths with International Rescue! Did you ever have a favourite Anderson spoof or parody? Let us know in the comments!

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, where Keith tells the Story of the TV21 Comic Empire – and part 4 is available from today!

Also available on our YouTube channel from today is The Making of Joe 90, a fifty-minute documentary featuring recollections from cast and crew about the making of the classic series!

On Saturday March 25th we paid tribute to the legendary Sylvia Anderson on what would have been her 96th birthday, while popular Anderson episodes that first aired in the UK this week in years past include Stingray‘s Stand by for Action (March 21st 1965), Captain Scarlet’s Flight to Atlantica (March 24th 1968), Fireball XL5‘s Dangerous Cargo (March 24th 1963), and ThunderbirdsThe Cham-Cham! (March 24th 1966).

That’s all the news for this week – but stand by for more action next week!
