This official companion not only traces the programme's evolution from sixties' curiosity to worldwide cult, it examines in detail the volatile social and political background which shaped its development. The 1960s was a time when the Cold War between the East and West was at its height, manned scpace flight had the Moon within its reach, James Bond ruled the cinema and The Beatles sang about peace and love. Yet there was an undercurrent of concern that in spite of this bright, new technological decade, people were becoming increasingly alienated from their political leaders. Instead of being enhanced by modern scientific advances individual freedom was becoming more limited and controlled. All these cultural tensions were reflected in the Prisoner. Incorporating an episode by episode analysis, unpublished photographs, props and memorabilia, production details, cast biographies, original photography, and first-time interviews with the people instrumental in the location filming, this is the ultimate guide to what is now viewed as one the seminal television series of its time.
