CONNECTING THE PRISONER
It is quite often that 'The Prisoner' is a subject for questions on a TV quiz or game show (usually folk are asked what Patrick McGoohan's number was, or where the series was filmed), and the latest of these occurrences appeared on 27/07/15 on the BBC show 'Only Connect' (left), only this time the question was more challenging than usual.
The teams had to guess what comes next in the sequence: 4. Free For All 3. A,B&C 2. The Chimes of Big Ben 1.? Neither team got the correct answer of 'Arrival', although one did know it was from 'The Prisoner' but thought it was the last 4 episodes. Better than the other team though, who gave 'The Jackson Five' as their answer!
Also on TV recently, Jo Wood (wife of Rolling Stone Ronnie) appeared on the show 'The TV That Made Me', during which she discussed 'The Prisoner.
