Inside Prison

There's a scheme at Doncaster prison where well behaved convicts are allowed to spend time playing with their babies. The theory is it means prisoners are less likely to re-offend when they come out of jail. As a journalist it's not easy to gain access to prisons, so I was pleased to have the opportunity to see inside and speak to a man who says he's benefiting from the Families First scheme...


  1. Great listen Mark- I've always wanted to spend a night in a prison and record it for radio.

  2. Excellent work - well done Mark. Showcasing positive initiatives in prisons and the humanity of those inside is really important! Nice key sound effects too!!
