Anderson Entertainment audiobook “UFO: The Snatch”, a story taken from the 1970 UFO annual, narrated by Nicholas Briggs

Anderson Entertainment have just released a free audiobook of “UFO: The Snatch”, a story taken from the 1970 UFO annual, as a festive treat.

Performed by Nicholas Briggs, and featuring authentic sound effects and music, this nostalgic trip will take you straight back to the world of S.H.A.D.O. and their fight against the alien threat, brought to life for just one season of stories on television, Gerry and Sylvia Anderson’s first live action show cruelly cut short, despite gathering ratings momentum in the United States.

Individual ITV broadcasters of the time simply,y didn’t know what to make of this adult-oriented SF in the UK, and on launch its broadcast was patchy across the country, despite capturing hearts and minds of many thanks not only to the TV stories, but comic strip adventures that were one of the highlights of Polystyle’s Countdown and TV Action comics, all now gathered in two great collections, available direct from Anderson Entertainment here and here.

The series is now something of a cult classic, with even talk of revival more than once – but until that day, audio stories like this new release will have suffice!

“We hope you have a great Christmas and thank you for your support throughout 2022,” say the Anderson Entertainment team, who have brought us some fantastic Gerry Anderson releases this year, including the brilliant Fireball XL5 sixtieth anniversary comics anthology. “2023 is going to be even more exciting!”

Head to the Gerry Anderson web store, add “UFO: The Snatch” to your basket, checkout (for free), and you’ll instantly be able to stream or download this 23 minute audio treat
