The Prisoner airing on Freeview Ch61 ‘True Entertainment’ from 21:00 Mon 13 Mar 2017
I spotted a slightly surprising show due to be aired on Freeview Channel 61.
‘True Entertainment’ is about start showing The Prisoner as of Monday 13 March 2017 at 21:00.
This replaces the current run of The Persuaders and will follow the same format of two episodes per evening.
While that will burn through the series in less than two weeks, The Persuaders was only 24 eps, and has been repeating for the past few weeks.
I don’t have the ability to look far enough forward to see if The Prisoner will also be looped for a while.
While I have a few version on various media collected over the years, and could watch as I wished, I never do, and rather like the ‘old-fashioned’ discipline of having to ‘catch’ a programme when it is on. That said, I seldom watch anything live now (or at all to be honest) but delay, so I can wipe out the poxy adverts.
Brings back memories too.
I said I was surprised, and that’s because we passed the 50th anniversary of the series not that long ago, yet not one broadcaster saw fit to mention it, or run the series to mark the event.
