“Home, Parker”

Sylvia Anderson, pioneer of puppetry and a trailblazer for women in entertainment, has passed on.  She leaves behind a legacy that will outlast many of you reading this today.  With a degree in sociology and political science, she worked in the US for several years as a journalist before returning to the UK and eventually joining AP Films with her husband Gerry.  The BBC has a nice article on Sylvia and her accomplishments.

Thunderbirds didn’t play in my area growing up, so it wasn’t until I was an adult before I had my first exposure to the Andersons and their amazing worlds.  I’m still a fan to this day…
