The definitive documentary about the iconic puppetry technique developed by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson, Supermarionation was used in all their programmes throughout the 1960s including Stingray, Captain Scarlet and Thunderbirds. Apparently, Century 21 stills photographer Doug Luke was interviewed for the documentary, but is neither on it nor the deleted scenes. The documentary is hosted by Lady Penelope and Parker, the puppet stars of Thunderbirds, who seek to uncover the story behind their creation.

Film historian Steven La Rivière, whose documentary about Supercar was the final word on the series, takes you behind-the-scenes and covers every aspect of the creation and production of such television shows as Supercar, Fireball XL5, Stingray, Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet, Secret Service, and Joe 90. Martin Townsend, in his New Year's editorial for The Sunday Express, enthused, "The likes of Apple and Microsoft may be very impressive companies, but if I wanted to inspire children to be creative entrepreneurs I'd show them the Supermarionation film.Read all The definitive documentary about the iconic puppetry technique developed by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson, Supermarionation was used in all their programmes throughout the 1960s including Stingray, Captain Scarlet and Thunderbirds.

Filmed in Supermarionation is a 2014 documentary film about Gerry Anderson, Sylvia Anderson and the struggling group of filmmakers who found success producing space-age puppet television series such as Supercar, Joe 90, Fireball XL5, Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons and Thunderbirds. In addition to attempting to recreate 1960s film-making techniques, 21st century methods were also employed in the interest of matching the original productions.

In 2015, the works of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson continued to be recognised by the Cult TV Awards, with Steve Zodiac from Fireball XL5 added to the Hall of Fame for 'Animated Character', actress Wanda Ventham, one of the female leads in UFO, added to the Actress Hall of Fame, and the documentary "Filmed in Supermarionation" was hailed as the 'Blu-ray/DVD Presentation of the Year'.
