Stephen was the creator of 2015’s definitive documentary on Anderson Filmed in Supermarionation and most recently was the brainchild and producer of Thunderbirds 1965 – the creation of three new episodes using only soundtracks recorded in 1965 which we are delighted to show on the big screen for fans of all ages at the Festival
