BFI Screening of 'In My Mind'.

Writes the BFI: "We’re proud to be screening this bespoke BFI cut of a new documentary on The Prisoner, made for Network Distributing. In 1984 Channel 4 documentary Six of One attempted to unravel the enigma of The Prisoner. Now, over 30 years later, Chris Rodley has returned to the project using material shot at the time (but not used) to create a brand new, fascinating look at the much-loved spi-fi series."
