Sad to hear...but I am confused by the thread title. Are you saying he was born this year and died next year?

Strange. Coincidentally ran a bit of my own mini UFO marathon today--best afternoon I've had in a while. Was lamenting the fact that we don't really have these sorts of high-concept, all-out-entertainment visionaries in TV any longer. Sad news.

I have enjoyed so many series' from this talented man. Starting with Four Feather Falls to The Secret Service, and then UFO and Space:1999. I am saddened to hear of his passing.


R.I.P. Mr. Anderson.

Wow, sad news. I happened to just watch the Christmas-themed THUNDERBIRDS episode, "Give or Take a Million", late in the morning on Christmas day, and STINGRAY's "A Christmas to Remember" this past Saturday... the first time I've spun those discs in a few years. R.I.P. Mr. Anderson.
