Network Celebrates Its Prisoner Blu-Ray Release With All Night Prisoner Marathon In London

Live in London? If so, I'm jealous of you! Because you could take part in the awesome release event Network is holding to celebrate the release of their upcoming definitive Blu-Ray release of The Prisoner. "The Prisoner All-Nighter" will take place on Saturday, September 26 (the same day Los Angeles spy fans are watching On Her Majesty's Secret Service in dye-transfer Technicolor!) at the Prince Charles Cinema in Central London. The event begins at 8:30 in the evening and continues throughout the night and much of the next day as all seventeen episodes of Patrick McGoohan's legendary series are screened back-to-back, in high definition. "Will you still feel like a free man after being subjected to 17 TV hours in the village alongside special guests who appeared in the show?" asks Network's email announcement, adding that "The Prisoner All-Nighter will be opened by Prisoner Loudspeaker Announcer Fenella Fielding and closed by an additional special guest. More guests are expected, subject to availability." Additionally, everyone attending will receive an exclusive reproduction of a 1967 Prisoner brochure and be entered to win other unique Prisoner memorabilia given away throughout the night. Prizes include six copies of original Prisoner special edition DVD artwork personally signed by the late, great McGoohan!

So how does one get to attend this event? You have to pre-order the Blu-Rays through Network's website. "To mark the Blu-Ray release of The Prisoner the first 125 Network customers who pre-order the Blu-Ray edition from the Network web site will receive a pair of tickets." Head on over and pre-order now (you know you'll be getting it anyway!) to secure your spot! And remember, those who go: I'm jealous of you all!

I so want to order this set! The Network site says it is region B. I guess I will await word to see if that is actually the case....

Oh no! That's terrible. I'm sorry to hear it! That's got to be horribly disappointing. Too bad; it sounded like such a cool event!
