BritBox UK announces new and exclusive documentary, Gerry Anderson: A Life Uncharted
The Format Factory and Anderson Entertainment have announced a new and exclusive documentary. Gerry Anderson: A Life Uncharted is in production and will be launched on BritBox on 14th April 2022.
Gerry Anderson’s career spanned 60 years, and he created some of the world’s most beloved children’s television series including Thunderbirds, Stingray, Captain Scarlet, UFO, Space:1999, Terrahawks, Space Precinct and many more, some of which were produced alongside his ex-wife Sylvia. Released a decade after his death, this incredibly revealing, emotionally charged and deeply personal documentary will draw on exclusive access to over 30 hours of previously unpublished interviews, in order to share the untold stories that defined his life and body of work.
In a fitting tribute to a television and film pioneer, and with permission from the Gerry Anderson estate, A Life Uncharted will use a wealth of intimate audio archive combined with deep fake technology to allow Gerry to tell his story on screen for the first time. With additional new interviews and commentary from friends, family, and colleagues, subscribers will get unique access to an examination of Gerry Anderson’s life and his perspective on his tumultuous personal and business relationships.
From a poverty-stricken childhood raised by a Jewish father and an anti-semitic mother, through a lifetime of personal struggles, this documentary maps his previously uncharted journey to puppetry pioneer, science fiction master and legendary creator.
