For the first time in more than five years, cameras have been allowed behind bars to make a documentary series in an English prison. Filmed over 7 months, PRISON tells the human story on both sides of the door: staff and prisoners, and the real issues facing them all.

Capturing first-hand the escalating drug problem, the scale of violence that frontline staff and prisoners endure daily and the multiple challenges of dealing with those suffering from mental health issues, the series reflects the national issues currently facing the prison service.

The 3 programmes deal with the 3 main issues affecting prison life today: drugs, violence and mental health.

Each episode is approximately 48 minutes in length
