In­side: Rus­sia’s Tough­est Pris­ons

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Wed­nes­day, 10.30pm, Nat Geo This is prob­a­bly not a pro­gram to watch just be­fore you go to bed. A can­ni­bal talk­ing about how he killed, fried and ate his vic­tim is not quite on a par with a mug of hot cocoa. The film crew who made this doc­u­men­tary in 2011 was the first Rus­sian of­fi­cials al­lowed into three of the coun­try’s harsh­est pris­ons: Black Dol­phin, 200-year-old Vladimir Cen­tral and Siberian Prison Camp 17. It fea­tures in­ter­views with some of the in­mates — in­clud­ing the can­ni­bal, who is de­lighted to de­scribe in de­tail his di­etary habits.
