Life on the Psych Ward

Life on the Psych Ward


London's Bethlem Royal Hospital is home to more than 100 patients, many of who have committed serious crimes but are considered too mentally disordered to be in prison. This documentary focuses on Tony, a paranoid schizophrenic and a history of violence, James, who is serving a life sentence for a violent stabbing in prison, and John, another lifer, who was found guilty of attempted murder. Cameras follow the three men coming to terms with the trauma they have caused as they take their first steps outside the hospital.
