    supermarionation

    The wonderful story behind Gerry and sylvia Anderson, Gerrys quest to be a great film maker, led to his ultimate achievement--Thunderbirds! a ground breaking series I thought I knew everything about this series, but this film goes behind the scenes to fill fills in all the blanks. ..its amazing i can't recommend it enough

    Great introduction for those less familiar with Supermarionation

    I've only seen a few episodes of Thunderbirds as a child and listened to some of the audio treatments from Big Finish, so I'm not as well-versed with these shows as other may be. Still, this was a great history lesson about the technical aspects as well as the storytelling. But what made me enjoy this documentary the most was the human aspect as we hear the memories of all the people working on these programs, whether they be puppeteers, actors, producers or serving some other role at AP Films. This also makes me more interested in exploring these shows more closely in the future.

    The Magic of it all.

    I thoroughly enjoyed watching this because I love seeing how things are made. A step back in time to the beginnings of Gerry Anderson's shows was a mind blower to say the least. The history of the shows was especially interesting, with never before seen footage of how it all works, topped everything else.
