A draughty warehouse on the Slough Trading Estate in the 1960s: what could possibly be so special about such a place?

In Century 21, Slough, the former studios of iconic series such as Stingray, Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons, Joe 90, The Secret Service, UFO, and most famously Thunderbirds are revisited one final time by the crew before the demolition of the buildings in 2017.

Original puppets and models from the series are returned to their former home as DAVID ELLIOTT (Director), MARY TURNER (Puppeteer), DEE ANDERSON (Daughter of Sylvia Anderson), ALAN SHUBROOK (Model Maker), DAVID LANE (Director/Producer), and Academy Award winner BRIAN JOHNSON (Special Effects) reminisce over the production of some of the most magical and impressive television and film achievements, with the aid of rare archive footage and photographs – some seen here for the first time!

See also the final piece of Supermarionation filmed in the original building as David Elliott returns to the director’s chair and Mary Turner climbs the puppet bridge once again…

Thanks very much for the notification. I'll have to get that DVD. A great shame that they treated that building so carelessly and tore it down. Looks nice on its own and it should have been recommissioned whilst maintaining its history.

Too bad it's not in town, otherwise Wetherspoons could have taken it over! No kidding, the UK pub chain seriously does renovate and thus save many buildings including old cinemas and celebrates their origins within the decor too.

Such a place would be a Mecca for all Anderson fans to have a pint among all that tv history.

Just look at this The Peter Cushing! http://www.worldtravelblog.co.uk/the-peter-cushing-in-whitstable-a-true-wetherspoon-classic/ https://www.jdwetherspoon.com/pub-histories/englahttps://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowUserReviews-g503922-d2269908-r257352669-The_Peter_Cushing_J_D_Wetherspoon-Whitstable_Kent_England.htmlnd/kent/the-peter-cushing-whitstable
