[17.08 - French Time] Patrick McGoohan will be back this summer as Number 6 on French and German TV screens simultaneously.

From July 24 to August 28, Franco-German channel Arte will run ITC Entertainment's cult classic The Prisoner (1967) in its Summer of the Sixties season.

For Germany this is an event as four episodes of Nummer 6, neither dubbed nor shown by ZDF in 1969, will be aired for the first time with a German dubbing made for the occasion: Free For All, The Schizoid Man, A Change Of Mind and Living In Harmony.

In The Prisoner, McGoohan (co-creator and producer of the show) was a secret agent taken against his will to The Village, a mysterious place whose its inhabitants are called only by a number.
