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 Free For All, the fourth episode of The Prisoner. Number 6 (Patrick McGoohan) runs against Number 2 (Eric Portman) in the Village election. But a fair and free democracy is incompatible with the aims of the Village, and Number 6 finds himself manipulated into a power grab beyond his control. Join us as we discuss this satirical and surreal take on the relationship between politics and the people.

We are also joined by Alan Stevens, co-author of Fall Out: The Unofficial and Unauthorised Guide to The Prisoner, who talks about his interest in the show and his thoughts on Free For All. Be seeing you!
