Gerry Anderson, creator of a host of childhood TV favourites from the 1960s and 1970s, has died at the age of 83, it has been announced.
His puppet-led TV shows included Thunderbirds, Stingray, Joe 90, UFO, Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons and Fireball XL5. In 1975, he created his first SF series using actors rather than puppets – Space: 1999, which starred Martin Landau, Barbara Bain and Barry Morse.
