Filmed in Supermarionation Book [Hardcover with Slipcase]

A newly expanded and redesigned edition of Stephen La Rivère’s history of Supermarionation updated and is presented here in a redesigned, deluxe slipcased edition, featuring scores of rare photographs, many of them previously unpublished. 

The story of the pioneering team that launched the television classic, Thunderbirds! Filmed in Supermarionation details the rise and fall of the puppet empire that rose from the Slough Trading Estate in the 1960s and created television shows such as Captain Scarlet, Stingray, Fireball XL5, Joe 90 and, of course, Thunderbirds. Packed with interviews from the original cast and crew, this edition also contains rare pictures and a lengthy section of extra features including previously unpublished storylines and original studio paperwork.

An absolute must for fans of the Supermarionation series!

Filmed in Supermarionation

Hi there. I first bought the paperback when first published and then your amazing offer for the hardback. The unexpected bonus is that now one of the many extra pictures has me on it! Secret Service last day - untrue actually - but near enough. Ultimate respect to Steven (whom I met on the South Bank premiere last year). Best wishes Mike Joyce
