I always felt a bit guilty that Tony Hatch, a Brit, wrote that awful theme tune. But as it sort of matched the awful show, it's fair exchange.
Prisoner was created by Reg Watson, who had previously produced the British soap opera Crossroads from 1964 to 1973, and would go on to create such popular Australian soaps as The Young Doctors, Sons and Daughters and Neighbours. Initially conceived as a sixteen episode stand-alone series, the storylines primarily concentrated on the lives of the prisoners and, to a lesser extent, the officers and other prison staff.

A trailer is basically an advert for something. An advert for toilet paper featuring a cute puppy does not make me want to buy that brand of toilet paper.
A trailer for a film or TV show does not make me want to watch that show. I'll watch the show and make my own mind up.
Actually, I'm more likely not to bother watching any shows in the first place.
