Filmed in Supermarionation / This is Supermarionation [Blu Ray]

This is a single reversible pack featuring two Blu-Ray discs.


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.

[] Deleted scenes: a selection of material that did not appear in the final documentary.
[] Filming in Supermarionation: filming the effects and puppets for the documentary
[] Special effects reel: an unedited reel of special effects shots created for the documentary
