This is a video guide to the cult television show The Prisoner. Filmed in England, the series aired in 1968-1969, in 17 episodes, and is considered by many to be the best series ever to be shown on the medium of television. Patrick McGoohan was the show's creator and star. The story line follows a British security agent sent off to a community known as "the Village." The agent was given the impersonal title Number 6. Filled with intelligent dialogue and surreal imagery, the series drew an eclectic audience in England and America. This video offers some interpretations of the show, and answers to questions, such as, who was Number 1? And where is "the Village"? There is a behind-the-scenes look at production and interviews with the actors.
