    as a very young child i had seen supercar and some re runs of four feather falls but fireball xl5 was really my first proper introduction to the wonderful world of gerry anderson, it sounds funny now but it really was the first of its kind on british tv and as with so many of gerrys productions it was mind blowing and inspiring to the younger generation, living in the atv area i was lucky to see all gerrys productions . unlike so much of the trash put on tv these days that is supposed to be childrens entertainment all of gerrys supermarionation productions were and still are first class entertainment and i for one would love to see if jamie can equal if not surpass the high standards that made all of gerrys shows so special

    Yea I remember watching this back in the early 60’s, was the coolest. And now I appreciate the massive effort it took to create this and the other series.
