Pod 203: Behind the Mic with Keith Alexander

Keith Alexander! Keith Buckley! Keith Alexander Buckley! He's man of many names and many voices. Despite a career that spans decades as well as continents, Keith remains best known for his collaborations with Gerry Anderson on such productions as Thunderbird 6, Joe 90, UFO, and Doppelganger. Keith recalls how he got bitten by the acting bug, how he came to voice his first puppet character, and what special effects maestro Derek Meddings made of the emerging evidence for the existence of UFOs. Plus a FAB Fact, a Randomiser, and many lovely notes from our listeners! Stay on this channel!

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'.
