Since its CBS debut in the summer of 1968, the masterful British TV series THE PRISONER has captivated American audiences. Now A&E presents a definitive aficionado’s edition of the cult classic which is considered one of the most innovative TV series ever filmed, for the first time in breathtaking Blu-Ray. Fully restored from the original film elements with newly remixed 5.1 surround sound and featuring hours of bonus material never released in North America, THE PRISONER: BLU-RAY EDITION is a fitting tribute to the creative vision of the late Executive Producer and Star Patrick McGoohan.
After resigning from a top-secret position, a man (McGoohan) is abducted and spirited from his London home to a mysterious place known only as ‘The Village.’ Village Residents, known only by numbers, are held captive because each possesses valuable knowledge. The Prisoner, now known as Number Six, battles to protect his mind — and his humanity — while struggling to discover the identity of Number One and escape captivity.
HOURS OF EXCITING NEW BONUS FEATURES: Newly remixed 5.1 surround sound for all 17 episodes (in addition to the original mono tracks). ‘Don’t Knock Yourself Out’ – Feature-length documentary chronicling the production of THE PRISONER, told by those involved in its creation; Two Brand-New Featurettes – ‘The Pink Prisoner’ and ‘You Make Sure it Fits!’; Promo for AMC’s THE PRISONER Miniseries; Newly restored original edit of ‘Arrival’ with an optional music-only soundtrack featuring Wilfred Josephs’ complete and abandoned score; Original edit of ‘The Chimes of Big Ben’; Production crew audio commentaries on seven episodes; Trailers for all episodes; Archive textless material, including the title sequence with clean themes by Ron Grainer, Wilfred Josephs and Robert Farnon; Commercial break bumpers; Image Archive with over 1200 stills; Production Paperwork Archive, featuring scripts, call sheets and press releases (DVD-ROM Feature)
