Gerry Anderson MBE[1] (14th April, 1929 - 26th December, 2012), born Gerald Alexander Abrahams in Kilburn, North London,[2] was a British producer, director and writer who became famous for his futuristic television programmes, particularly those involving the super-marionation process of specially modified marionettes.

Married for years to the former Sylvia Thomas, better known by her married name of Sylvia Anderson, he sired at least one son by her, Jamie Anderson. The acrimony of their divorce in the 1970s led him to refer to her, invariably with undisguised hostility, as "that woman" for the rest of his years.

He died on 26 December 2012 of dementia at the age of 83. At his death, he left behind a legacy of futuristic story-telling that would continue to outlive him. His work continued through Jamie, his son by Sylvia Anderson.

  2. The family's ancestral name, from the Russia-Poland border, was Bieloglovski, but a British immigration official changed this to "Abrahams" in 1895. The family matriarch, Deborah Abrahams, subsequently changed the family name yet again, to "Anderson," because she liked the sound of it.
