New edition of Filmed in Supermarionation released

An updated and revised edition of Filmed in Supermarionation, which sprang from the eponymous Gerry and Sylvia Anderson-inspired documentary project, has been released.

This edition, clocking in at a staggering 500 pages, is shipping worldwide now and can be bought via the Century 21 Films website.

This version represents a substantial update on the 2010 and 2014 editions, being based on a wealth of newly discovered material outlining the behind the scenes dramas in more detail than ever.

The book includes pages of photo inserts featuring previously unseen stills, plus there’s an accompanying colour photo booklet including other images we couldn’t fit into the main text.

Outside of the main book, there’s a short appendix covering Century 21 Films modern day Supermarionation productions – from Filmed in Supermarionation and Thunderbirds: The Anniversary Episodes to Endeavour and Nebula-75.
