About this programme

1/2. Part one of two. Documentary filmed over five months at the young offenders' institution in Buckinghamshire, as officers try to keep control of some of Britain's most dangerous criminals, including murderers, rapists, gangsters and paedophiles - the oldest of whom are just 21. Many of these young men have been abandoned by their families, so prison staff endeavour to act as surrogate parents and role models. In this edition, several northern newcomers join forces and take another inmate hostage in a bid to negotiate a transfer to somewhere closer to home. Narrated by Paul McGann.
