I was saddened to learn of the recent passing of British animator and TV producer Gerry Anderson at age 83. Most people are probably familiar with Anderson's puppet-action TV series such as "The Thunderbirds," but I remember him most fondly for UFO, a live-action series that only lasted for one season (1970-71 - I think production for some shows began in 1969). These shows were created alongside his ex-wife, Sylvia Anderson, who remains active in the entertainment industry to this day.
This is the BBC's obituary on Gerry. And you might consider purchasing the whole UFO series, which is available on DVD. It really was ahead of its time.
I have been involved in media since 1978, primarily radio. Full time Christian ministry since 1988, including radio, apologetics, written publications, preaching and teaching. Why do I go by Solameanie online? Long story.
