Gerry Anderson was a British publisher, producer, director and writer, famous for his futuristic television programmes, particularly those involving specially modified marionettes, a process called "Supermarionation". His list of such programmes include Supercar, Stingray, Thunderbirds, and Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons. He was also responsible for the live-action television shows UFO, Space:1999, Space Precinct, as well as the feature length movie, Journey to the Far Side of the Sun.

  • His film career started as a teenager under 'George Pearson (III)' (qv) at the Colonial Film Unit.
  • Anderson's ancestral (from the Russian-Polish border) name was Bieloglovski. This was changed to "Abrahams" by a British immigration official in 1895. His mother, Deborah, changed it to "Anderson" because she liked the sound of it.
  • Father of 'Jamie Anderson (IV)' (qv).
  • He was awarded the M.B.E. (Member of the Order of the British Empire) in the Queen's 2001 Birthday Honours List for his services to Animation.
