New shows to carry on Gerry Anderson's legacy

Fans of Gerry Anderson can look forward to a new series of programmes.

The man behind legendary shows including Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlett and Stingray passed away in December aged 83.

But today the puppet master's production company, Anderson Entertainment, revealed it is involved in the process of pursuing a number of new projects.

Gerry's son Jamie, who is also head of production at Anderson Entertainment, said: "Dad was working on a number of projects which he was sadly never able to complete, so we're proud to be seeing these through to completion.

"We hope that we'll be introducing genuine Anderson productions to a brand new generation."

Gerry Anderson developed his craft at his first studio in the ballroom at Maidenhead's Islet Park House, on the banks of the Thames upstream of Boulters Lock.

A new website has also been created to celebrate the back catalogue of the prolific producer.
