Gerry Anderson Auction Update

16th December 2008


"I have been in and out of Pinewood Studios for much of my long career producing various movies and television series. My plans for the future are to make top quality movies in CGI. This necessitates employing up to 200 technicians for a period of two years for each movie. Unfortunately Pinewood Studios can no longer accommodate me due to lack of suitable space and so I am having to relocate elsewhere. I AM NOT RETIRING! However since I will be operating temporarily from my Home Office I simply won't have room for my huge collection of memorabilia. I have therefore decided to auction these unique items."

However, several new items have been added to the auction since the catalogue went to print. Details to follow!
