Its a given i suppose that any for any boy born between 1960 and 1970 would have a Gerry Anderson impacting on their lives.
With me it was this show. I loved it dearly - but not so much for the episodes which were, after all, shown once and never again.
No, after the brilliant notion of the show, the vehicle designs, the costumes, the moody opening credits shown here, the brilliant Ron Embleton paintings on the end credits, what really made it for me was the gumpf that went with it.
Dinky toys, Sugar Smacks giveaways, bendy toys, cigarette cards - i lapped it all up.
Still enjoy watching it now but, as with SO much that you'll see on this here Blog, the thought crops up "this was for children????"
