Inside Prison: Britain Behind Bars

Inside Prison: Britain Behind Bars

Series 1 - Episode 3



The documentary lifting the lid on life behind bars focuses on HMP Isle of Wight, a specialist prison housing many sex offenders and paedophiles. Intelligence has been gathered that a USB stick containing child pornography is doing the rounds, so the officers launch a search. But finding such a small item in a vast prison is no easy task. The staff also face a constant battle against drugs, with the inmates finding increasingly sophisticated and creative ways to smuggle them in, from letters sprayed with a spice solution to hollowed-out chess pieces.
