Thunderbirds creator Gerry Anderson's funeral held (BBC)

Thunderbirds creator Gerry Anderson has been remembered as a "visionary of the future" by family and friends.

Hundreds attended the funeral of the man who also created science-fiction series Captain Scarlet, Joe 90 and Stingray in Reading earlier.

Mr Anderson, from Henley-on-Thames, died last month, aged 83.

Fans travelled from across the country, as well as from overseas to be at the funeral which featured tributes from former Thunderbirds cast and crew.

The service at Reading Crematorium was followed by a reception in Henley-on-Thames.

2. My favorite show when I was little

My first crush was on Brains. I was 3. After 2 divorces I found the man of my dreams...a bespectacled, quiet genius. My life has come full circle.

RIP Mr. Anderson.
