July 7th saw Carlton release a compilation DVD that is sure to be a winner with fans of the ITC adventure shows. CULT TV LEGENDS features four classics from the sixties: the colour Danger Man episode "Koroshi", (one of only two full colour Danger Man episodes made), the first Prisoner episode "Arrival", the first episode of The Persuaders, "Overture", (starring Roger Moore and Tony Curtis) and the infamously offbeat episode of The Saint: "The House on Dragon's Rock". (Why is it offbeat? Simon Templar fights a giant mutated ant! Makes a change from diamond smugglers I suppose). (TRIVA-FACT: The pub seen in the pre-credit sequence of that episode is only a short drive from Portmeirion!)
Although most Prisoner fans will probably already have "Arrival" on DVD, this is the first time "Koroshi" and "House on Dragons Rock" have been released on disc.
The RRP is a very reasonable £9.99.
