Most people either seem to love Portmeirion or to loathe it - I'm one of the former. I love its quirkiness and humour, I love it's beauty and tranquility.
This album is available in three formats - Tape (while they still last), CD and DVD. The DVD is simply a soundtrack of the album accompanied by a slideshow of images taken in the village - the YouTube video on this page is one of the tracks - Saluation.
If you want to find out more about Portmeirion then you should visit their official site here. There used to be a number of virtual tours of the village but they currently all seem to be off line. While trying to track one down I did come across Portmeirion as Virtual Reality, an extract from Craig Conley's book "Puzzling Portmeirion" - it makes interesting reading.
Portmeirion is probably most famous for being the setting for 60's TV series "The Prisoner" but, brilliant as that series was, if you only think of Portmeirion in terms of mini mokes, weather balloons and that brilliant opening sequence then you're missing out on a lot.
Neverthless, the Prisoner must have been one of the most challenging and exciting programmes ever to appear on television.If you'd like to know more about it then you won't do much better than visiting the site supported by Six of One. It was as a member of that group that I first visited Portmeirion, way back in the late 70's.here
