The Prisoner - A Prediction Of The Future?
This is a picture taken from the Prisoner episode The Schizoid Man. In it you will observe the old man in the wheelchair is wearing a tinted visor. In fact many citizens in the village are seen to be wearing such visors. However, I wonder if this was a sign for the future? Because a month or so back, I watched a piece on reginal television, about life in an Old People's Village. Two elderly gentlemen were having a game of 'Conkers.' Nothing unusual in that, save for the fact that one of the elderly gentlemen was wearing a clear perspex visor! That's Health & Safety for you.
I'll be seeing you
