“Inside the World’s Toughest Prisons” is a television documentary series presented by Raphael Rower and is being produced by London-based Emporium Productions. The first season was originally launched on Channel 5 and April 5, 2016, and was hosted by Paul Connolly. The docu-series showcases life in nineteen lockups across the globe, mainly from the prisoner’s viewpoint but also incorporating the viewpoint of jail wardens and others interacting with the lockup system. Since the 2nd season, the documentary has been authorized by Netflix and hosted by journalist Rowe, who had also been detained for twelve years in jail for a crime that he was wrongly accused of.
In this show, Rowe brings out the lockup system’s truth from inmates’ viewpoints and Colombia. In each episode, the sealed system is recorded in multiple interviews: pressure due to illegal factions, unhygienic problems, and complicated logistics. Even the liking of sustenance prepared in the cafeterias.
“I decided that I was going to open the gates of prisons around the world for international audiences so they could get a real insight to what life is really like inside prisons. For prisoners, for prison staff, for families, and anybody that is involved in the prison systems around the world,” Rowe said.
The series had a rough beginning but following through the fourth season, it became one of the most successful documentaries on Netflix. Also, it is currently in its sixth season now, and if you’re wondering about season 7 of Inside the World’s Toughest Prisons, here’s what we know about it.
