UK distributor Network has released a trailer for their upcoming documentary film, Filmed in Supermarionation, about Gerry and Sylvia Anderson's cult classic shows. The Andersons and their talented team filled the airways in the 1960s with thrilling spy-fi adventures like Stingray, Thunderbirds, and Captain Scarlet. The new movie was directed by Anderson scholar Stephen La Riviere, and includes rare archival footage, interviews, newly remastered sequences in hi-def, and on-set reunions with cast and crew to spotlight their innovative special effects and techniques. Hosted by Lady Penelope and Parker (Thunderbirds), the doc will premiere at the BFI on September 30th. General release in October, 2014. Hopefully we will also see a DVD/Blu-ray release from Network. The film is based on La Riviere's excellent book, Filmed in Supermarionation (Hermes Press/2010). Spy Vibers may also know the director from his previous Network documentaries about The Saint, The Ipcress FileThe Persuaders, and The ChampionsStand by for Action!
