The Prisoner dvds place the episodes in a fan produced proper chronological order, that varies from original order.
Really? How interesting... They don't in this country. In fact, every video and DVD release of The Prisoner has always been in the original screening order. Out of interest, what order are your DVDs in?

This is the episode arrangement of The Prisoner Region 1 DVD set. It is not in broadcast order. Are your DVDs Region 2? I can't find any place on the internet that shows episode arrangement for The Prisoner UK Region 2 DVDs to confirm that it's different.
Hmm... What a strange order. "Fan preferred..." I wonder which "fan" pefers it, then. I can sort of see where it's coming from in parts, but even so, it's a bit of a liberty to impose your own order on a general commercial release. The debate over the correct running order for The Prisoner has been raging for over thirty years, since ever I've been a fan of the series. No one's opinion is better than anyone else's. I mean, my own preferred order would certainly echo parts of that DVD order, but would deviate wildly in others. (When I watched my DVDs, I had to chop and change discs a lot to be able to watch it in my preferred order.) So, in answer to your question: yes, the British discs (all three releases) and VHS releases before that, have always stuck to the original screening order:
The Chimes of Big Ben
A. B. and C.
Free For All
The Schizoid Man
The General
Many Happy Returns
Dance of the Dead
Hammer into Anvil
It's Your Funeral
A Change of Mind
Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling
Living in Harmony
The Girl Who Was Death
Once upon a Time
Fall Out

Are there any other shows where the DVD order is different from the TV order?
There are some flat out screw ups on the Dukes of Hazard DVDs. I can't remember now which season it was now, but some episodes that contain the character "Hughie Hogg" are completely out of order as they were originally shown. In fact I don't think they even got them in the right season, let alone the right order within a season.

In the TV run, there was a specific episode that originally introduced the character. But in the DVD sets, they replaced that intro episode with a later episode involving the character. Then much later on in the DVD releases, like in the next season I'm thinking, we get the original intro episode.
You paid money for The Dukes of Hazzard on dvd?
Yes sir and I have no problem admitting it. That show brought me a lot of laughs over it's run on TV. Still does from time to time.
Drill Here. Drill Now. Pay Less.

Re: TV order vs DVD order

Actually, many of the ITC series are not in broadcast order - not that anyone could say for definite what the original broadcast order was, as it tended to vary slightly across the ITV regions.

Space: 1999 - DVDs are in production order.

Same things applies for UFO - so again, DVDs are in production order (bar a couple that are reversed for continuity reasons).

Man in a Suitcase, that's another one that sticks to production order. Makes sense, you get to see the first episode, the one that explains McGill's situation, first - rather than sixth as it originally went out.
