UFO is more than just a bit of nostalgic fun! It's also a show with a lot to say about religion, philosophy, race relations, and politics. Teaching us to think critically about cult TV is our guest Samira Ahmed. This week she discusses the gender dynamics of Moonbase, SHADO fashions, the links with Stingray, and why Albert Camus would love UFO! If all that sounds too intellectual, don't worry! Richard, Jamie, and Chris are there to keep it simple too. It's another packed edition of the Gerry Anderson Podcast!
