AL BE SEEING YOU
Up until Christmas 2014, comedian Al Murray may not have been an individual whom you would have associated with "The Prisoner", but it turns out that it is his favourite TV show!
"Al Murray's Great British Spy Movies" (left) was a one-off BBC4 special broadcast in December which featured many classic British spy films, but also a small TV section in which Murray stated his love for the series.
Clips from the series (as well as "The Avengers" and "The Champions") were included, as Murray led a discussion with Matthew Sweet (film historian), Dame Stella Rimington (ex MI5 head) and Matthew Forde (comedian). and he finished the programme by saying 'Be seeing you'. The show is available on iPlayer for a short period HERE.
