Firstly, there is a new DVD/Blu-ray limited edition set, which includes all 17 episodes in stunning high definition, now with new optional text commentaries for every episode detailing the scene by scene production story of the series, with new on-screen text information every 8 seconds.
Network felt that it was important that people would not be asked to buy the same content twice, so none of the extras from the previous box set are included here, and all new special features created for this set.
The set also includes:
The new documentary 'In My Mind' (review HERE) with additional Patrick McGoohan and Catherine McGoohan interview footage.
New 8mm behind the scenes production footage (details HERE).
Out-takes/trims from World Backgrounds, previously unreleased, containing content such as the fairground ride in 'The Girl Who Was Death', the 'Many Happy Returns' raft footage, and much more.
Extensive stills gallery with many previously unseen stills.
