Brits Behind Bars
With thousands of UK citizens currently held in jails around the world, this documentary focuses on the moving cases of British prisoners. Those who break the law overseas face potentially lethal consequences – nightmare ‘living hell’ conditions, disease, abuse, terror, and sometimes even death. Meeting families and lawyers forging major battles to get fair treatment for their loved ones, the programme reveals trials that have gone catastrophically wrong, dubious evidence, and one man who has been struggling to prove his innocence for almost three decades.
