Inside the World's Toughest Prisons


Series 1 - Episode 2 Poland



Journalist Paul Connolly experiences life as an inmate in some of the world's most notorious prisons. He begins by serving time with some of Poland's most dangerous criminals in Piotrkow, a maximum security facility where isolation, strict discipline and zero tolerance keep prisoners locked up for 23 hours a day. Paul learns first-hand about the punishment room where violent inmates are subdued, is subject to an intimate body search, watches as the guards search for contraband, and discovers why inmates are forced to eat meals in their cells.
