“By hook or by crook, we’ll get it!”

Which is of course, about getting information, from The Prisoner, being shown again this summer on BBC Four.

Pat Kane quotes Wilson/Bey:

“…the more of this information you take in, the darker things get. I call it the “lite age” as opposed to the dark ages. A situation where you have all the information all the time — completely accessible — where in other words there are no secrets, or there’s a perception that there are no secrets, that there’s no information that we can’t get. This kind of false omnipotence, this superman of information.”

Victor steps outside to see if the shape of all this information makes more sense than the substance.

Which is always an alternative if you’re allowed.

“Be seeing you!”
