Patrick McGoohan (Six of One’s Honorary President) plays a man who resigns from a top secret position and is abducted from his London home. He finds himself in a beautiful village where everything is bright and cheerful - the people, their clothes, the buildings, the flowers. But despite this rosy exterior, the village serves a sinister purpose. People are forcibly brought there in order to have their valuable knowledge protected or extracted. Everyone in the Village is assigned a number instead of a name - the Prisoner is Number Six. Chief interrogator and administrator is Number Two, but he isn't the boss - an unseen Number One is the boss.
Failure is not tolerated in the Village, and most episodes feature a new Number Two, though some are privileged to return for a second chance to break Number Six and discover why he resigned.
The Prisoner struggles to keep this information from his captors and to find out which side runs the Village and where it is. He strives to discover the identity of Number One, and above all, he attempts to escape.
(Synopsis by Bruce Clark)
Six of One, established in 1977, is a non-commercial society and is the only official appreciation society for THE PRISONER television series. Six of One is administered by a small number of enthusiasts, all unpaid volunteers working in their own free time. There is no "head" of the society, all decisions are made by democratic means through members of a co-ordinating team. Team members are simply those who undertake a body of work on behalf of the society as a whole and the team expands and contracts to meet changing circumstances. Society members are encouraged to participate, if they wish to do so, at every level. There is a convention at Portmeirion, where the series was filmed, and other social events and location visits are organised from time-to-time. Additionally there are a number of local group organisers who provide social meetings for members within their own geographical area.
Membership of the society is by annual subscription and brings you quarterly mailings which include a quality professionally printed magazine each time plus other printed items. You can join online by credit card or by regular mail.
