Lifers: Behind Bars
Lifers: Behind Bars 2 x 60'
This groundbreaking documentary series shows what its like to serve a long-term prison sentence in Britain - from the moment of sentencing through to release. Filmed over a year with unprecedented access to jails including HMP Shotts, Scotland’s only prison exclusively for long term offenders, we meet the men convicted of murder and serving mandatory life sentences who speak candidly about their crimes, their struggles in prison and their remorse – or lack of it. Epsiode one follows newly-convicted killers from sentencing at court through the system as they are helped to face up to years behind bars. Episode two reveals the day-to-day reality for some of the five hundred men in HMP Shotts, who combined are serving well over four thousand years in custody. It explores how they live together and how the jail manages and contains so many violent men.
