The Tally Ho - The Prisoner episode 6: The General
< 1 day ago
The Tally Ho welcomes you to The Village as we continue our journey through classic TV series The Prisoner. In this episode we look at The General, the sixth episode of The Prisoner. Number 6 (Patrick McGoohan) witnesses his fellow villagers fall under the influence of a revolutionary new teaching method known as Speedlearn, which has been masterminded by a character known only as The General. A mysterious Professor and a dissident within the ranks of the Village heirarchy lead Number 6 to uncover the secrets behind this apparently flawless educational tool.
Join us as we discuss this prescient tale of public manipulation and the propaganda machine. And we ask the most important question: what did happen in 1878? We are also joined once again by film director Alex Cox who gives us his thoughts on the episode which he explored in his book 'I am (not) a Number: Decoding The Prisoner'.
Be seeing you!

Great podcast for fans of sci-fi and comics
Does a wide range of topics from week to week - not just comics and movies, but also retro TV shows, books, and video games (lots of Nintendo stuff). Quite relaxed, not too shouty!
