Doing Hard Time

Doing Hard Time

Available on Dplay
Each episode of this programme examines one aspect of the state's paramilitary approach to their prisoners, the idea being treat them like highly disciplined soldiers and they will stop acting like criminals. Over the course of a year, cameras capture both those who work in the system and those housed within it - from nonviolent offenders in a boot camp to hardened criminals in `Hi-Max', the environment that allows the most extreme disciplinary methods.
Starring Thurston Moore
