Over the course of centuries, millions of people have been locked up in Britain’s jails and every prison cell has countless hidden stories to tell. Through travelling the corridors, cells and long-abandoned spaces of a different prison in each episode, viewers will learn what life was, or still is, like there from the first-hand accounts of inmates stored in archives and expert interviewees, bringing to life criminals whose stories have often been long forgotten.

Prison: Britain’s Criminal Past will also address big questions that are still relevant today – what is the right age of criminal responsibility? Should women go to jail – even if they’re separated from their children? And ultimately, does prison actually work?
