Welcome to The Tally Ho, a podcast about the classic TV series The Prisoner.
In this special episode, we talk to writer, editor and comic book collector Ian Rakoff. Ian worked as an assistant editor on the series, and wrote the classic episode Living in Harmony. We chatted to Ian about his life and career, from growing up in apartheid South Africa to his career in TV and film working alongside some legendary film makers such as Lindsay Anderson, John Boorman, and Nic Roeg. Ian discussed his time working on The Prisoner with editor John Smith and the controversial credits on his episode Living in Harmony. He is a lifelong comic book fan and tells us about their social and cultural significance. His comic collection is now kept at the V&A in London as part of the National Art Library Comics and Comic Art collection. He is currently writing his memoirs and shares some material from it during the episode.
