Pod 41: Dirk Maggs Reveals a Previously Unknown Gerry Anderson Project

Director and writer Dirk Maggs is back once again, this time revealing how he created a 1980s Thunderbirds adventure, wrote an origins story for GFI, and how he wrote a treatment for a previously unknown Gerry Anderson series: Ape Man.

We also hear a bit more about Dirk's career, and reflections on the Supermarionation shows and their effect on his life.

And, navigating a powercut, there's a special intro from Jamie and Richard, a randomiser, some FAB facts and all the usual goodies!

Playing Officer Orrin in Gerry Anderson's last live action series 'Space Precinct' clearly wasn't enough to put Richard off the worlds of Gerry Anderson!

As well as co-hosting the Gerry Anderson Podcast and the almost-monthly Facebook, Twitch, Periscope and Youtube broadcast, FabLive, Richard has also taken parts in the audio series 'Terrahawks' and the pilot minisode for the forthcoming 'Gerry Anderson's Firestorm'.
