The Prisoner filming location 'a home for fallen buildings'

The location for the cult 60s television show The Prisoner, the village of Portmeirion, draws visitors all year long and is now the host of an arts and music festival inspired by the programme.

The village was the brainchild of Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, designed and built between 1925 and 1975.

His grandson, Robin Llewellyn, told the BBC about how the village had become "a home for fallen buildings" and some of its more famous features.
