PATRICK McGOOHAN

The Prisoner Nummer 6


DON'T FORGET TO SAY THANK YOU FOR THE STAY!

The sediments at the bottom of television: series and serials, omnipresent and almost as infinite as the medium itself. Few only were successful in touching the underside of our attentiveness.
UNWAHRSCHEINLICHE GESCHICHTEN ("Improbable Stories") was one that did, the classic TWILIGHT ZONE.
Anything associated with the expression TV-magic applies to this.

Phantastic television of the sixties, among other things, is one conjuring formula:

FEEDBACK

Your website (even in
translation) stands out as one
of the best for an English
reader. I have researched Prisoner internet sites rather thoroughly, and in putting together a syllabus for a class
on The Prisoner, I knew that I would include materials from
your site. I am impressed
with the wide range of
materials you consider but also with the depth of analysis you offer. You engage the spirit of Prisoner, and that is the
most critical contribution
anyone can make.

READ READ ANSEHEN LOOK

THE PRISONER is unique within the scope of television series. Looking back, what is most astonishing about it is that it was commerical entertainment. That's what made it a flop at first.

Basically, the series is a torso, unfinished or brought arbitrarily to an end. The creative force in behind, front of it and above all was principal actor and co-producer Patrick McGoohan.

This website is directed to German language visitors in the first place. However, a great number of articles, whole sections of it actually, is in German and English. E.g. the "Speedlearn" chapters are almost 100% bilingual with the English version right after or under the German text. The sign-posted chapters like "Chess lawn", "The Café" etc. (see above!) are completely in English. And some of the articles under the "Tally Ho" heading are available in English, too, as they were originally written in that language. Unfortunately, it isn't possible to provide each and every article in both versions.

WHAT IT MEANS NOT WHAT IT SAYS

STEVEN RICKS: STUDIO DAYS - MGM

Commemorating the time when TV programmes were introduced by a (mostly) female announcer. Before the start of each episode viewers were given a short synopsis of the basic premise of the series. To be followed by the formulaic coda, "Tonight, from our rather off-beat spy-series NUMMER 6, we are presenting you the episode..."

The series was shown on Saturdays around midnight and in no particular time slot or running order, with long intervals in between episodes. Of course, as is known, only 13 episodes were dubbed into German. During the Summer Olympics of 1972 in Munich seven (of scheduled eight) episodes were screened again by ZDF, the eighth being cancelled after Palestinian terrorists had attacked the Israeli team.


The German debut of the remaining four (no dubbing this time) was as late as 2006 when the DVD set was published by Koch-Media.

It wasn't before the mid 80s when NUMMER 6 was given a rerun on German TV sets. This time the 13 German episodes were aired. But this event passed almost unnoticed by the public because commercial station Sat1 could be watched only by those happy few with access to cable TV. In 1989 and in 1992 NUMMER 6 received more attention thanks to the arrival of satellite TV.
