The Prisoner was a strikingly original British television series in which an espionage agent (played by Patrick McGoohan) attempts to resign his post, only to find himself spirited away to a strange penal colony, where one can live in peace so long as they do not question the actions of the leadership. The agent, now dubbed No. 6, struggles to maintain his individuality as he tries to find out who is holding him captive and why. This home video collection features four episodes from the series (which McGoohan produced and helped to create, as well as starring as No. 6): "Prisoner 2: The Chimes of Big Ben, "Prisoner 3: A, B and C, "Prisoner 6: The General, and "Prisoner 11: Checkmate."
