The work of Gerry Anderson has been, and continues to be, thoroughly documented across books, films, events and more. Historians and researchers work hard to unearth fascinating information surrounding the Anderson productions. The story of Gerry’s career and his works will be told and updated with new knowledge and insight so long as there is a fascination with the magic of film.

It’s a tale of hard work, determination, building and trusting a good team, and bouncing back against insurmountable odds. Much like anyone else, Gerry had his fair share of successes and struggles which shaped his career and often left an impression on his work as a producer.
