» » Her Majesty's Prison: Aylesbury

Short summary

Hard life in British youth prison Aylesbury, where particularly troublesome youngsters from all over England are sent to be handled by specialized staff. The juvenile version of hard time has its own rules, yet the risks and hardships, also for staff, are much alike adult prison, which probably awaits those inmates who aren't reformed here, which therapists believe is possible at least for some.

    As someone close to the reality of prison life I can honestly say this programme reflects the harsh reality of today's young imprisoned persons. It's hard, it's often sad, it's disturbing but it's as it is, to the point without any frills. The production team got the facts spot on, it's hard hitting but it's real. The reality is that many of these young men have committed awful crimes and prison is the only way to protect the public. However, as the programme reflects, prison is not a holiday camp for these young men. Its a hard environment for prisoners but also for staff who have to remain professional often under extreme pressure. The programme reflects this extremely well. I am proud that the prison service allowed this production to go ahead. It's an excellent programme which many will watch over and over again.
