Space:1999 Genius Keith Wilson has Died

8th July 2011

Emmy award-winning production designer Keith Wilson has died

Fanderson was saddened to hear of the death of the Emmy Award-winning production designer Keith Wilson.

Perhaps best remembered for the outstanding interiors he developed for Space:1999, Keith began his association with Gerry Anderson as a designer on the second series of Thunderbirds before being promoted to production designer on Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons alongside John Lageu. He went on to work as an art director on Joe 90 and The Secret Service, before delivering his most impressive designs on both seasons 1 and 2 of Space:1999.

Keith was a great favourite with fans at conventions and there was widespread disappointment when he was unable to attend last year's TV21 event. He will be greatly missed, but his work lives on, particularly in the amazing futuristic sets he provided for Moonbase Alpha.

An obituary will appear in this month's issue of FAB.
