Pod 182: Ben Field Documents the Uncharted Gerry Anderson

How do you encapsulate a man's life in a ninety-minute documentary? Then, how do you capture the spirit of that ninety minutes in a short title? Never one to shirk from a challenge, director Ben Field dived in full speed ahead for the new documentary Gerry Anderson: A Life Uncharted. In this episode, Ben explains how he discovered the emotional core and sense of humour at the heart of a man strong enough to bounce back from terrible adversity. Plus, an exploration of the ethics and viability of deep fake technology. All this and so much more in this week's podcast!

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'.
