Having an hour to spare yesterday, being Sunday, I decided to sit, watch, and listen to the commentary by Vincent Tilsley on The Chimes of Big Ben. As I sat watching and listening, something caught my eye on the screen. As the scene opened with No.6 and the General paying a game of chess, in the background a chap was pushing a woman, wearing a red tinted face visor, in a wheel chair, as in the first picture. What's so strange about that? Well nothing, except moments later, from a different camera angle, there is this same chap about to push a woman, wearing a red tinted face mask, passed the General and No.6 again, but without passing the other way. The Prisoner is full of such quirky film moments, but I had not observed this one before. Be seeing you
