Great Prisoner news over at:
Which I have cut and pasted below. It will not surprise you all that I have already booked my ticket. It is always a fun event and all profits from it go to a Welsh children's hospice.
ROBERT RIETTI AT PM2008
The Unmutual Website is delighted to announce that the first of its' special guests at PM2008 in Portmeirion on Sunday 13th July is none other than actor and voiceover artist Robert Rietti.
Robert appears in almost every episode of "The Prisoner", yet we never see his face. As well as the infamous opening sequence dialogue between him and Number Six, Robert also provides the voice of the male Village Announcer in the series, and in several episodes dubbing some of the characters (including D in "A, B, & C", the Interrogator in "Chimes", Mexican Sam in "Harmony" and many others).
Robert also co-starred in 2 episodes of "Danger Man" and re-dubbed McGoohan in the 1975 film "Nobody's the Greatest". He also worked on 5 James Bond Films, classic films such as "The Italian Job", and countless Cult TV series.
This is the first "Prisoner" event Robert has attended at Portmeirion, and PM2008 will also mark his first visit to the Village. TUW is honoured to have such a distinguished guest at PM2008, and Robert will be interviewed on stage by event host Dave Jones about his incredible career.
