Region 2 DVD (may not be viewable outside Europe).


This is the definitive documentary telling the story of the unique puppetry and animation technique developed by Gerry and Sylvia and their team and deployed in all their programmes throughout the 1960s including Stingray, Captain Scarlet and, most famously, Thunderbirds.

Directed and co-produced by Stephen La Rivière and hosted by Lady Penelope and Parker themselves, Filmed in Supermarionation is a screen adaptation of his book of the same name and features a wealth of previously unseen archive footage, brand new interviews with the surviving casts and crews and clips from the shows themselves. A highlight of the film are ingenious and accurate recreations of the pioneering techniques used in the productions.

Bonus Features:

  • Deleted scenes: a selection of material that did not appear in the final documentary.
  • Filming in Supermarionation: filming the effects and puppets for the documentary
  • Special effects reel: an unedited reel of special effects shots created for the documentary
  • Gerry and Sylvia in America: colour footage shot by Barry Gray of Gerry and Sylvia at the 1965 World's Fair in New York
  • Tomorrow's World: full Video Assist report
  • Something for the Children: Sylvia Anderson archive interview

Great documentary

Total :


This film will give everyone an insight to how the famous "Supermarionation" shows were made. I enjoyed it from beginning to end. My dad loves it too as he remembers most of the "Supermarionation" shows he watched when he was a child and keeps turning to me and asks me "Would you watch this if we have it on DVD?" and I'd say "Yes but all except "Torchy, The Battery Boy" I'd recommend this film to anyone
