    Quick note to say I found the photos and should be able to scan them tomorrow.
    _"For an eternity Allard was alone in an icy limbo where all the colours were bright and sharp and comfortless.
    _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
    _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
    _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

        I've uploaded my photos of Portmeiron to the Hiya! thread in Fabulous Harbours: Welcome Centre.

          As I mention above, Universal Pictures are supposed to be making a Prisoner movie with Chris Nolan (which probably means Christian Bale will be No. 6 ), but Granada are also supposed to be doing a TV remake (possibly with Chris Eccleston, possibly not) called - possibly - Number Six.
          I wonder who owns the rights to the concept - I thought it was McGoohan. Wonder if he had a change of heart after all those years - apparently he didn't like the reaction he got from fans after the final episode.

            The rights to The Prisoner are held by Granada - "lock, stock and barrel" as someone on another forum put it. McGoonan actually owns nothing. I'm guessing that the film rights might have optioned by Universal from Granada, which could explain why there's a proposed film in the running as well as the tv series.

              They would have to get some seriously clever writers for any new Prisoner venture to even be a patch on the original.

              A mate of mine did his undergraduate dissertation on The Prisoner, amazing the amount of stuff there is out there on the show, not to mention the philosophical angles too.

                Thanks David - luv 'em. It must have felt a little strange wondering around 'The Village'. Can't wait to fly over and see it myself. Am thinking about visiting next year sometime and wouldn't mind actually staying in Portmeirion. I've been checking out accomodation here http://www.portmeirion-village.com/e...ges=26&sM_id=3
                Anyhow, thanks again

                and over in the big black booth near the edge of the fairground, the last band is playing...
