Johnson's first movie & soundtrack came into being through the recording of a potential single called, Who is Number 1 ?, a tribute to Patrick McGoohan's brilliant 60's TV series, The Prisoner. Later this became the soundtrack to the scratch video / movie called Who is Number 1 ?

Put together by Johnson in 1993, the movie was a raw and compelling combination of images moving to the changes and dialogue of the soundtrack, forming into statements related to the original Prisoner series and the programme's innovative and timeless comments, mixed with the movies own statements from a 1990's perspective.
