The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - TV HIGHLIGHTS -

(Na­tional Ge­o­graphic Hd, astro Ch 573, 9pm) See slices of life from be­hind the walls of asia’s largest prison, Ti­har, in New delhi, In­dia. Pris­on­ers and staff mem­bers talk about their chal­lenges, fears, anx­i­eties, hopes and dis­ap­point­ments. It’s a world of hard­ened crim­i­nals prone to vi­o­lent con­flicts with one an­other and with the guards, yet it is also a cor­rec­tional fa­cil­ity with a range of ed­u­ca­tional fa­cil­i­ties and pro­grammes de­signed to re­form and re­ha­bil­i­tate. It’s a world where Manu Sharma, con­victed for the sen­sa­tional mur­der of a model, runs a fac­tory, and where ed­ward Joseph el­lis, a bri­tish man charged with drug pos­ses­sion, has spent years fight­ing a court case. Fresh in­mate ashir Ku­mar must learn the ways of prison life while await­ing a de­ci­sion on his sen­tenc­ing.
