Network is delighted to announce the release of one of the most radical, thought-provoking dramas in the history of television. The Prisoner, starring and produced by Patrick McGoohan, which originally aired on ITV between 1967 and 1968, will be released as a 40th anniversary special edition DVD set on 1st October 2007 - forty years to the day it was shown on ITV Newly restored from the programme's original film elements, this series has never been seen like this before and is a must-have item for all fans of slick and intelligent dramas.

This is the only release of the show ever to be endorsed by the show's creator and lead actor Patrick McGoohan. Acclaimed actor Patrick McGoohan is Number 6, imprisoned in a mysterious location called The Village, rebelling against his unnamed captors and their attempts to extract information from him or make him conform. In a multilayered drama leaving one asking mind boggling questions, this seventeen episode masterpiece explores every concept imaginable: from democracy and freedom to the nature of the individual and revolution.

Widely regarded as a fighting political commentary which is as relevant today as it was to people who saw it for the first time in 1967, The Prisoner continues to fascinate a whole new generation.

With a cracking theme tune by Ron Grainer, special guest appearances from some of the top names from the stage and screen including Leo McKern, George Baker, Peter Bowles, Donald Sinden, and Anton Rodgers The Prisoner 40th Anniversary Special Edition is THE definitive release of the series and essential viewing.
