Fourteenth broadcast episode of The Prisoner, where Number Six goes West

"Living in Harmony" is an episode of the British science fiction-allegorical series, The Prisoner. It was first broadcast on 29 December 1967. It differs from most other episodes of the series in that it does not begin with the show's standard opening credits sequence. In fact, in a situation considered somewhat unusual for a 1960s television program, the actual title of the series does not appear on screen until the standard closing credits for the series. This episode was not aired in the United States during the series' initial network run.
