    During the 1960s and 70s, distribution of the Anderson shows was common throughout the UK and British Commonwealth countries but unfortunately less so in the U.S.A., sad to say. Today American kids of all ages can see for themselves what all the joy was all about back then. I for one used to run home from school to catch the late afternoon showing of the newest Fireball XL-5 episode on one of the local Canadian TV stations. Stingray was mind-blowing (buildings that lowered underground!) and when Thunderbirds came out (in colour!) I was ecstatic. According to various obituaries in today's British newspapers those Anderson shows have been rerun many times on UK TV and continue to pull in large audiences of all ages. To Gerry, where ever you have gone, a hearty "F-A-B!"
