50 Years of Joe 90
Joe 90 followed the adventures of a nine-year-old boy, Joe McClaine, who starts a double life as a schoolchild-turned-superspy.
First launched on 29 September 1968, this Anderson production is celebrating 50 years this year. We will be displaying props models and puppets from the original series including the original Joe and Mac puppets.
The Anderson Collection
The FAB Worlds of Anderson has curated a collection of models, props, costumes, and or course, puppets from a universe of amazing television shows.
This display has been made possible through the generosity of a number of private collectors, and whilst photography is permitted, we ask that you do not touch any items on display.
One of Gerry Anderson’s most ambitions live action productions combined puppets and special effects with state of the art prosthetic costumes. Space Precinct was a thrilling high-octane police series set in the distant future.
See the actual moulds that were used in the production of the show, alongside reproductions of the aliens cast from those original moulds.
A stunning display of the iconic Thunderbirds vehicles, presented in actual Studio Scale models used in the recent Thunderbirds 1965 production.
We’ll be screening some rare episodes and pilots from the Anderson Archive, courtesy of Anderson Entertainment. The Lost Worlds of Gerry Anderson will also be available to purchase through The Gerry Anderson Shop at the event.
