F is for Fireball XL5

Fireball XL5 was a SF-themed children's television show produced in 1962 by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson, using Supermarionation. Thirty-nine black and white half-hour episodes were made on 35mm film - it is doubtless the fact that this was the last Anderson series made in black & white that the show is rarely repeated. Its successor, Stingray, is still repeated regularly. Oh well - we may see Steve Zodiac, Venus and Robert the Robot again one day...
