This week in Gerry Anderson news!

We’re getting a strange reading on the astroscope – it must be the latest Gerry Anderson news roundup!

This week’s edition of the Gerry Anderson Podcast launched on Monday, and featured the first part of an interview with puppeteer – and the voice of Zippy, George, Sooty and more – Ronnie Le Drew! 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) The Protectors enter the world of movie-making as they investigate The Insider!

This week’s big announcement was the exciting news of the upcoming Stand by for Action 2 concert, taking place at the Birmingham Symphony Hall on July 13th! More details, including ticket launch dates, are available here.

The Fireball XL5 Technical Operations Manual is coming in February from the Official Gerry Anderson Store! If you missed the announcement we gathered all the classified data on this upcoming release in a handy article here!

Popular Anderson episodes that first aired in the UK this week in years past include Captain Scarlet‘s Traitor (January 14th 1968), Stingray‘s The Lighthouse Dwellers (January 17th 1965), Captain Scarlet‘s Renegade Rocket (January 19th 1968), Joe 90‘s Three’s a Crowd (January 19th 1969), Fireball XL5‘s Planet of Platonia (January 20th 1963), ThunderbirdsThe Man from MI.5 (January 20th 1966) and UFO‘s Flight Path (January 20th 1971).
