"Arrival" is the title of the first episode of the British science fiction-allegorical series, The Prisoner. It originally aired in the UK on ITV on 29 September 1967 and was first broadcast in the United States on CBS on 1 June 1968.
The episode introduced audiences to the character of Number Six, portrayed by Patrick McGoohan and introduced most of the concepts that would dominate the series throughout its 17 episodes.
The introduction (which, with some edits, is used subsequently as the show's introduction) shows an angry, unnamed man, driving his Lotus Seven in London. He parks his car, storms down a corridor, and bursts into an office, accosting another man (though no dialogue is heard, only claps of thunder). The first man throws an envelope on the desk and leaves, returning to his home; meanwhile, his photo identification is marked with "X"s and the word "RESIGNED". At the man's home, he quickly packs a small bag, apparently leaving on a trip, from his study, unaware that an undertaker from a hearse that has followed him from the city has injected a gas through his door's keyhole. The man collapses onto a couch.
When the man awakes, he finds himself in a room that looks similar to his study, but then soon realizes he has been abducted and brought to a small town. Meeting the people that live in the town, he discovers the place is called "The Village" and that there are no apparent routes to leave it - it is surrounded by mountains on all sides save for where it meets the sea. He returns to where he awoke to find that the mockup of his study adjoins more contemporary living quarters. His phone rings, and learns that "Number Two" wishes to meet him in the Green Dome....
