Thursday, 8.30pm, National Geographic Welcome to another ripper episode of this well-made program about prison breakouts. ‘‘ In a place where violence and chaos rule, an unusual partnership leads to a daring breakout.’’ So says a notice at the beginning of The Connecticut Conspiracy. For his crimes of burglary and larceny, Ronald Rutan was given 19 years in the maximum security Connecticut Correctional Institution. One day he is overheard talking about planning an escape by Frank Vandever, a former stockbroker doing 40 years for murder. Sometimes the real criminals narrate these programs, but in this case, while we hear from former wardens and officials and fellow inmates from the prison, the roles of Rutan and Vandever are played — and narrated — by terrific actors. Suspenseful as hell.
