Inside the Prisoner: Radical Televison and Film in the 1960's

This is a British book written by the man who co-wrote the episode Living in Harmony for the Prisoner. It's more a story about the man's personal life than it is information about the Prisoner as such, although there are some very fascinating personal insights into what was going on during the last part of the history of the Prisoner series.

The book does not paint a very flattering picture of some of the people involved in the series, and it seems that advanced planning was not necessarily one of the top priorities in the making of the show. The part about Ian Rakoff's youth in South Africa is quite interesting.

A book worth reading, but not necessarily something for anyone but a completist.
