FILMED IN SUPERMARIONATION
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 Riviere 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.

I was very grateful that the second disc This is Supermarionation was included in the set. I may not have ordered it had it been a separate purchase. This stuff is 60's TV gold and is presented pretty much as an evening watching your favourite shows complete with commercial breaks featuring original Anderson themed ads for Kellogg's Sugar Smacks and Lyon's Maid Zoom etc.
The total run-time for this set is about 6 hours which represents fantastic value for money and is recommended for a great dose of nostalgia.
Treat yourselves - a great way to spend several hours for fans of any age.
I first saw it on Satellite TV, but loved it so much I really wanted the blu-ray. I only bought it for "Filmed in Supermarionation", blythely thinking "This is Supermarionation" would be an earlier and lesser version of the same (i.e. an extra I wasn't bothered about).
However, to my surprise, the latter disc contains a high def episode from each series (again from Four Feather Falls right up to The Secret Service) - which is a lovely way to round out the pack, - as is the inclusion of some of the supermarionation-themed TV adverts from the age in which these series were originally broadcast.
A wonderful trip down memory lane for anyone who grew up during those years, and a very good explainer for anyone wondering what all the fuss was about.
The second DVD uses HD technology for selected episodes from all of their known tv series. Its odd that the later series looked more aged than their earlier ones. Possibly a reflection in the transition of the size of the heads to more adult proportions plus some awful scripting. Enjoyable in parts but not to the same degree as the first DVD.
