As mentioned on my home page, I'm a big fan of the Prisoner
first shown during 1967 in England, and in 1968 in the U.S.
After vaguely remembering seeing it as a kid (everyone remembers Rover,
the "big white balloon!), I got reacquainted with the series when
it aired on PBS in the 80's (narrated by Harlan Ellison) and then later
on video. The Prisoner was conceived, partially written, produced and starred
During my October 1988 North England / Wales / Scotland trip, I stayed
at and photographed Portmeirion,
Wales ("The Village"), where the Prisoner TV series exterior
locations were originally filmed. This is quite an unusual and magical
place to visit or stay at for the night if you're in the area, even if
you're not a Prisoner fan. The eclectic nature of the Italianate 'village'
is the legacy of Sir William Clough-Ellis. His daughter is responsible
for the development of world-renowned Portmeirion pottery, which is fired
in the area and sold at "The Village" (and domestically at Gayfers
and Burdines department stores!). Pictures of Portmeirion that I took while
there are shown below.
