Saturday Matinee: The Laughing Prisoner

“The Laughing Prisoner” (1987) is a parody of the 60’s cult programme The Prisoner, starring Jools Holland and Stephen Fry. This was shown as part of The Tube programme in 1987, and was repeated on 1st January 1993 as a stand-alone feature. John Peel appeared in the original version introducing a performance from a band. However the 1993 version cut him out for unknown reasons. Features appearances by Hugh Laurie, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Magnum and XTC.
