Number Six finds himself in a western town called Harmony,which is run by the Judge, with the Kid,a young gunslinger, as his murderous assistant. The Prisoner would appear to have been the town sheriff,who resigned and refused to carry a gun. The Kid leads the townsfolk in an outbreak of killing with Kathy, a saloon girl befriended by Number Six, as one of the victims. This persuades Number Six to take up arms but then finds that he has been enacting a role play in the village to make him more disposed to killing and the Judge is yet another Number Two. The result ends in tragedy. Written by don @ minifie-1

Did You Know?


"Living in Harmony" has been termed a bara brith Western (as opposed to a spaghetti one), incorrectly stating it is the only Western made in Wales. However Living in Harmony was filmed largely at MGM Borehamwood, Hertfordshire in England with location footage shot on the Dunstable Downs. Only a single Stock Shot of Portmeirion, North Wales is used to indicate that it is not a true Western but a fantasy created 'supposedly' in the grounds of the Village. See more »


Towards the end, when Number Six wakes up and starts running around the mock western town, his blazer changes from buttoned to unbuttoned and then back to buttoned again. This occurs when he runs into a building and then runs out of it. See more »

Number Six finds himself in the Old West owning the skills to function in the TV version of that era. He has just resigned as the Sheriff (Sound familiar?). He comes back into town after a beating (of which he receives several) and meets the Judge (who, of course, is Number Two). Running the town are the Judge's henchmen and a psychotic guy known as "The Kid." He is mute and threatening. He hooks up with a saloon girl whose brother is hanged. She endangers herself by using the Kid for her own purposes, even though they are benevolent. These things come back to haunt her. This is "The Prisoner" so we know that at some point we will be made aware of some sort of ruse. The judge wants to know why the Sheriff resigned and that is the root of the episode. An odd choice where Number Six is again at the mercy of forces he is unable to combat.
