"The General"

"The General"

UK Airing: November 3, 1967

US Airing: July 13, 1968

The Prisoner goes on a quest to find "The General", the force behind a learning method that is being adopted by the entire Village. But what is the purpose of this learning method and why does it seem more devious than it first appears?

John and writer Jim Beard discuss applied learning techniques, the music of the series, and the types of episodes one finds in this series in an episode that does not match John's memories of watching it growing up and has never been a favorite of Jim's.
