But what really inspired and drove him to become such a prolific creator? This new documentary uses previously unseen and unheard interviews, combined with cutting-edge technology, to map Gerry Anderson’s previously uncharted journey: from a poverty-stricken childhood, raised by a Jewish father and an anti-Semitic mother, to becoming a puppetry pioneer and legendary producer.
