The collected legendary cult TV series starring Patrick McGoohan. The Prisoner centres on a British Intelligence agent (McGoohan) who is kidnapped from his London home and taken to a strange island village, where he's subjected to a brainwashing programme by an unseen foe. His new identity as 'Number Six' is confusing at first, giving way to anger and frustration along with a great desire to get away. Various agents of the mysterious regime that run this island, invariably called 'Number Two' seem intent on finding out why he resigned his covert post in the intelligence service. Number Six gamely attempts to resist the brainwashing of the omnipresent yet unseen 'Number One' whose voice booms at him from every corner of the village and whose eye appears to see all. Number Six's futile attempts at escape only intensify the sensory barrage (including hypnosis, hallucinogenic drug experiences, identity theft, mind control and dream manipulation) of Number One. The series was filmed on location in the rather spooky grounds of Clough Williams-Ellis' Italianate Hotel Portmeirion in North Wales.
