Fall In: The Prisoner at Fifty Event
UPDATE: 14 JULY
Who are the warders and who are the prisoners? Our first two guests represent one of each, and you also get a Department S operative thrown in for good measure...
PETER WYNGARDE is best known as smooth operator Jason King, but the year before his Department S debut, he occupied Number Two’s globe chair in one of The Prisoner’s best-loved and most iconic episodes, Checkmate. We’re very pleased to welcome Mr. Wyngarde back to the village – you’ll be seeing him there on September 29.
JANE MERROW is a familiar face from the ITC canon, clocking up appearances in Danger Man, Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased), The Saint, The Baron and UFO in addition to her memorable appearance in The Prisoner episode The Schizoid Man – in which she played one of the few villagers whom we know by name, Alison.
These two special guests are the first in a stellar line-up of Prisoner cast and crew members who will be returning to the village on September 29th. And as long as they cough up the secrets, we’ll be letting them go again afterwards... watch this space for more information... information... INFORMATION!
29 SEPTEMBER 2017
The Prisoner, Patrick McGoohan’s visionary television series, reaches the half century of its first UK transmission in September. In celebration, Network is returning to the place where it all began - the village, aka Portmeirion, to host a one day event for the launch of our new feature-length documentary plus a brand new Blu-ray and DVD edition
This unique day will bring together surviving cast, crew and other special guests alongside screenings of key episodes from brand new 35mm prints, Q&A’s, installations and more.
The centre piece will be the world premiere of Chris Rodley's new feature-length documentary In My Mind, followed by a very special 35mm presentation of Arrival at 7.30pm, 50 years to the minute of its UK premiere.
The new edition of our Blu-ray and DVD set is included in the ticket price for those attending the event, ahead of the official release date. All 17 episodes feature brand new detailed text commentaries and a wealth of newly produced special features, including the documentary feature In My Mind, unseen footage and much more.
This deluxe edition also includes an updated edition of Andrew Pixley’s definitive and highly-regarded book on the series, lavishly illustrated with rare and unpublished photographs and a newly remastered 6-CD soundtrack of the specially composed music scores by Albert Elms, Wilfred Josephs and Robert Farnon, Ron Grainer’s themes and the Chappell music library pieces altogether in one set for the first time.
Tickets are available to purchase from today but places at this unique event are strictly limited, and offered on a first come, first served basis. Tickets are priced at £135, which includes admission to the premiere, all episode screenings, Q&As and events around the village throughout the day plus the new deluxe BluRay or DVD box set.
A very limited amount of overnight accommodation for 28th and/or 29th September in Portmeirion itself is available to purchase separately. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your details and PRISONER50ACCOM as the title for further details.
