WHO ARE THEY? "The Village People: Nodge, Roo and Steve." WHAT DO THEY WANT? "Information." HOW THE HECK DO WE GET RID OF THEM? "Sorry."   For nearly fifty years now, Patrick McGoohan's classic television series THE PRISONER has entertained and perplexed millions of viewers around the world. Even today the show divides opinion as to whether it is a work of genius or a load of old rubbish. Over the decades since THE PRISONER's first appearance, many scholarly minds have tried to fathom this cult classic and failed. Now it's the turn of three idiots to try and work out what's going on. A. B. and C. Why did the Prisoner resign from his highly confidential job? The desperate efforts to extract the truth from him take a new turn when 'Number Two' decides to take the risk of subjecting him to an experimental process in which dreams can be penetrated. Under the influence of a wonder drug, his sub-conscious thoughts can be converted into electrical impulses and finally into pictures on a television screen… StarringPATRICK McGOOHAN as The PrisonerGuest starsKATHERINE KATHas EngadineSHEILA ALLENas Number 14COLIN GORDONas Number TwoPETER BOWLESas 'A' Cast also includesThe Butler … Angelo MuscatBlonde Lady … Georgina Cookson'B' … Annette CarolFlower Girl … Lucille SoongMaid at party … Bettine LeBeauThug … Terry YorkeThug … Peter BrayhamHenchman … Bill CummingsWriten by ANTHONY SKENEScript Editor GEORGE MARKSTEINDirector PAT JACKSONProduced by DAVID TOMBLINExecutive producer PATRICK McGOOHAN

This time there is a name: Nadia – and the prisoner finds himself with a new neighbour. They meet and her story is curiously akin to his own. All she has done is to resign. Now that the Prisoner has an ally, can they effect an escape?

Now it's the turn of three idiots to try and work out what's going on (it's our first go at this podcasting lark, so please go easy on us).   In this podcast, The Village People podcasters take a look at the very first episode of THE PRISONER.   ARRIVAL Who is he? This man who is to remain a prisoner for a long time? Who has abducted him? And why? Vapour hisses through a keyhole. The occupant of the room passes out and then, returning to consciousness, lurches to the window for air. But it is not the familiar London view that he knows so well. His eyes stare out at a village he has never seen before: a beautiful village, architecturally puzzling and difficult to identify, with the sea in the background, mountains stretching in the other direction. It could be anywhere. Anywhere in the world… Starring PATRICK McGOOHAN as The Prisoner Guest stars VIRGINIA MASKELL as The Woman GUY DOLEMAN as Number Two PAUL EDDINGTON as Cobb GEORGE BAKER as The New Number Two Cast also includes The Butler … Angelo Muscat Taxi Driver … Barbara Yu Ling Maid … Stephanie Randall Doctor … Jack Allen Welfare Worker … Fabia Drake Shopkeeper … Denis Shaw Gardener/Electrician … Oliver MacGreevy Ex-Admiral … Frederick Piper Waitress … Patsy Smart Labour Exchange Manager … Christopher Benjamin Supervisor … Peter Swanwick Hospital Attendant … David Garfield Writen by GEORGE MARKSTEIN and DAVID TOMBLIN Script Editor GEORGE MARKSTEIN Director DON CHAFFEY Produced by DAVID TOMBLIN Executive producer PATRICK McGOOHAN
