Pod 207: David Hirsch and Robert Wood

Welcome, Podsterons! Robert E Wood and David Hirsch are two Space: 1999 experts and the authors of a new book called: 'To Everything That Might Have Been: The Lost Universe of Space: 1999.' In this episode, the dynamic duo relate how Space: 1999 producers had doubts about the sets on Guardian of Piri, what Lee H. Katzin really contributed to Breakaway, and how they came to work with Year 1 writer Christopher Penfold. Plus, the usual dynamic duo of Richard James and Jamie Anderson go on a Quick Fire Five adventure, climb a mountainous FAB Fact, and watch in awe as Chris Dale descends into Randomland!

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'.
