Stingray 2017
Unstoppable Cards Films, TV, Sci Fi & Comic Art Stingray 2017 Stingray 2017 LT54 - Anyone growing up in the 1960s will remember Stingray the marvellous submarine piloted by Capt. Troy Tempest. This was another TV series produced by the Andersons using supermarionation. It was the first where the characters had interchangeable heads to allow a variety of expressions and was also one of the first British TV series to be filmed entirely in colour. Tempest, who was modelled on James Garner, works for the World Aquanaut Security Patrol an organisation based in Marineville in the year 2065. Their enemies include the Aquaphibians ruled by King Titan. He had a mute, underwater-breathing servant Marina but after assisting the Stingray crew to escape his clutches she becomes part of the Stingray team. The underwater scenes used a dry set with the camera filming through a narrow water tank which contained air bubblers and fish. Surface scenes used a large tank of blue dyed water. The first 40 cards are action shots from the programme with text about the episode on the back and a different mini picture, then there are 9 cards containing close ups of the characters, Marineville and Stingray with different pictures on the back, followed by 3 ‘behind the Scenes’ cards with pictures on the reverse. Size 88 x 63mm.
