Patrick McGoohan's "The Prisoner" has stood the test of time. A classic British TV series with elements of sci fi, mystery, comedy and high drama, this "allegorical conundrum" had a riveting effect on viewers when it first aired in 1967. It was unlike anything that had ever before appeared on television. During production, McGoohan said that the purpose of "The Prisoner" was "to create a feeling of unrest about life today. It was an abstract impression of the world we are living in and a warning of what would happen to us when gadgetry and gimmickry take over from creative people." "The Prisoner" remains an intriguing social commentary as it speaks to a new generation. his set contains: Episode Four: "Checkmate"; Episode Five: "The Chimes Of Big Ben"; Episode Six: "A, B And C"; Episode Seven: "The General.".
