The Prisoner - Series 2

THE PRISONER - SERIES 2 (320kbs-m4a/550mb/3hrs59mins)
BBC Radio 4 Extra broadcast: 10th March to 7th April 2019

The original 17-episode TV series of The Prisoner created intrigue and controversy in equal measure when it first aired in the UK in 1967.

In a taut psychological spy thriller the main character, dehumanised as ‘Number 6’, has committed no crime, save for having resigned from some unspecified branch of the British Secret Service. His prison was a heavily guarded coastal village.

Under constant surveillance, Number 6 can trust no-one and relentlessly works to establish who his captors are. As the audio re-imagining continues, we discover more about the enigma of the personal life of Number 6...

Music - Jamie Robertson
Script Editor - Jamie Anderson.

Written and directed by Nicholas Briggs.

A Big Finish Production - based on the classic ITV series.
