'GUNS, GIRLS AND GADGETS - SIXTIES SPY FILMS UNCOVERED'

The 1960s was a watershed era for the spy movie genre. From James Bond to Matt Helm, U.N.C.L.E. to Bulldog Drummond, Harry Palmer to Derek Flint, and many others beside, a new generation of glamorous characters with an eye for danger was dominating our cinema screens.

With Dr No and From Russia With Love, Ian Fleming and Eon Productions had found both a winning and successful formula and these first 007 movies inspired many other filmmakers to enter the genre and present many different rivals, imitators and spoofs of the masterspy James Bond.

Written by TV and movie historian Michael Richardson, Guns, Girls, and Gadgets is an indispensable guide to 50 productions which assisted in forming the 60s movie spy craze.

'THE PRISONER DUSTED DOWN'

By David Stimpson

A personal examination of The Prisoner.


The Prisoner television series, filmed in 1966/67 and starring Patrick McGoohan as Number Six, has inspired much research since it was first broadcast more than 50 years ago. Its universal themes, allegorical content, and on-screen metaphors have stimulated debate, and confusion, amongst its viewers and ardent fans and much that was seen on screen has remained enigmatic. Until now.

The culmination of more than five years of research by series aficionado David Stimpson, The Prisoner Dusted Down re-examines the entire series, unearthing new information and offering fresh, personal perspectives on the finished episodes.

Answering questions you always wanted answered, and questioning answers you always believed, The Prisoner Dusted Down is a must-read for anyone with an interest in the most thought-provoking TV series of all time.

"DUSTED DOWN has no padding. It is all meat. It is a fast flowing river from first to last page. You never rest...The depth of analysis is incredible."
Chris Riley, The Tally Ho

VOL 1 - PATRICK McGOOHAN TALKS TO HOWARD FOY'

The first in a series of CDs of archive recordings with cast and crew of The Prisoner TV series.

In 1990, Patrick McGoohan met with journalist Howard Foy to record an interview for issue one of 'The Box' magazine. It would turn out to be McGoohan's last in-depth interview regarding the series.

What inspired the series? How did he find his co-stars? What were his 'essential seven' episodes? How did Rover come to being? What does he think of the series' fans? All this, and more, is discussed in this edited 45 minute interview.

*Please note. This interview was originally recorded on dictaphone cassette tape. Whilst restoration has taken place courtesy of legendary Doctor Who sound man Mark Ayres, the audio quality of this CD is very variable and reflects the circumstances in which the recording was made.*
