Anderson and Aldrin in Cardiff

How sad to hear of the death of Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons creator, Gerry Anderson. Anderson was in Cardiff back in 1996, signing copies of his authorised biography at Blackwell’s bookshop. Later in the day he gave a talk about his life and career at the Royal Hotel. The other speaker that evening was American astronaut Buzz Aldrin. What a space-related double-bill that must have been. And tickets at only £5 a pop. The above advert is taken from Beyond the Boundaries – a local sci-fi fanzine of the era.
