Prison Season 2 Premiere | Mon 17 Feb 2020 Channel 4

Channel-4-Logo

The multi-award-winning documentary series returns, offering a rare insight into life behind bars, and exploring the issues that prison staff and inmates face. This time the gaze falls on HMP Foston Hall – a women’s prison, where more than 300 women are incarcerated for everything from non-payment of fines to murder.

The opening episode focuses on the First Nights Unit, where women can arrive for sentences as short as just a few weeks. Expectations are upended with moments of warmth and humour. But there is also bullying, if inmates are suspected of ‘grassing’ or being ‘pad thieves’. ‘It’s like St Trinian’s on crack’ says one returning offender as staff attempt to thwart the trade in illicit drugs. This is no easy task as some women come in with drugs smuggled ‘in lady parts’.

Meanwhile, romantic relationships develop on the wing, where even straight women partner up, known in Foston Hall as being ‘gay for the stay.’

Series Prod/Dir: Paddy Wivell; Exec Prods: Richard Melman, Kathy Myers; Prods: Marian Mohamed, Jack Wood; Prod Co: Spring Films

Airdate: Monday 17 February 2020 from 9.00pm-10.00pm on Channel 4.
