The Prisoner 35th Anniversary Companion

On this “Special Edition” DVD you get a wealth of biographical information and visual material, as well as a Renault 21 TV ad based on this legendary Cold War-era feast for late-’60s conspiracy theorists. The holy grail for Prisoner fanatics, however, is a rough-cut, alternative version of episode one, “Arrival”, never officially available before, featuring different intro music. Scoff if you like, but remember we’re talking here about probably the most iconic opening sequence in British TV history.
