50 Years of The Prisoner: A special two hour programme celebrating the 50th anniversary of classic cult TV show The Prisoner. Alex Fitch talks to two editors of the show – Ian Rakoff and John S. Smith – and hosts a live commentary track for the episode ‘Living in Harmony’ with Smith, Rakoff (who also wrote the episode), Prisoner historian Rick Davy, and Rob Fairclough, writer of The Official Prisoner Companion book.
‘Living in Harmony’ was broadcast on 29 December 1967, exactly 50 years before the broadcast of this show, and the interviews and live commentary were recorded at the ‘Mind Mash 2015’ event organised by The Unmutual website. If listeners want to watch the episode while listening to the podcast, there’ll be a countdown to pressing play on your DVD player / Amazon video stream. The podcast also features classic tracks by Albert Elms and Ron Grainer from the soundtrack of The Prisoner.
The Electric Sheep Film Show is broadcast on the third Wednesday every two month, 5.30-6.30pm at Resonance FM 104.4. Next date: 21 February 2018.
This show was first broadcast on Friday 29 December 2017.
