Welcome to the R&CO. blog and our first article. R&CO. is a creative consultancy, so we’ll make it our mission to only ever bring you interesting news and transmissions.
And talking about first transmissions, did you know that R&CO share the very same office at Pinewood Studios where Gerry Anderson, the legendary creator of Thunderbirds, the ground-breaking puppet series, made his long-term creative home for more than 30 years?
“Gerry was an institution at the studio, famous for the use of ‘Supermarionation’, and worked at Pinewood Studios for many years. Supercar, Fireball XL5, Captain Scarlet, Space 1999, UFO, Stingray, Joe 90, but especially Thunderbirds, were enjoyed by millions internationally and will always remain a part of British culture” said Ivan Dunleavy,
Chief Executive at Pinewood Studios.
It’s so inspiring working at the most iconic film studio in the world; home to James Bond and Disney. And you never know which celebrity you might bump into on the landing or staircase. We’ll certainly be keeping an eye out for familiar faces when many celebrities take part, and walk the red carpet, at Pinewood Studios for the Celebrity Luncheon & The Sylvia Anderson Awards on 7th December 2017 in support of Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Sylvia Anderson, Gerry’s Anderson’ wife, has left a huge legacy with her pioneering work as co-creator of Thunderbirds with her most iconic character Lady Penelope, and was always at the cutting edge of ground breaking television. Sylvia’s daughter Dee Anderson, in collaboration with Industry Professionals, has created the Sylvia Anderson Awards to be presented to emerging writers, musicians, film makers and animators at a high-profile Celebrity Luncheon event to be held at Pinewood Studios on 7 December 2017.
We’re sure this will be a FAB and fun event, whilst supporting a brilliant Charity, and wish each and every nominee the best of luck.
