Life Behind Bars

David Navarro spent ten years in and out of prisons all over the country. Now he’s sitting down with people who have spent time inside to reveal the truth about the UK prison system. In each episode, David sits down to eat a real prison meal with a guest who has their own unique experience of being incarcerated or working within His Majesty’s Prison Service. From the moment they take their first bite, the pair embark on a journey that unravels the real myths and stereotypes that people have about UK prisons and prisoners. All comments they dissect are genuine things people have said on the internet about UK prisons. Exploring topics such as rehabilitation, overcrowding, relationships, and the challenges faced by both prisoners and staff, the conversation covers difficult topics and brings back memories for those involved. Across the series, we’ll hear anecdotes painting a unique picture of daily life inside. Stream on Crime + Investigation Play or YouTube.
