Back in the 60’s a TV series sparked interest in audiences world wide. The Prisoner was filmed in a little village called Portmeirion in Wales, UK.

The story behind the now cult series was simple. Prisoners were held captive in a village which was patreoled by large balloons and did not allow anyone to escape. People were given numbers to identify themselves rather than names.

So number 6 was played by Patrick McGoohan who tried his best to escape the village each week. The film location is now a famous tourist attraction in Wales.
