Prison TV (E4) Meeting the founding fathers of the prison TV channel

Aleksandr, Sergey and Boris are prison inmates, but they refuse to succumb to the boredom of jail. They found their true passion behind a barbed wire fence: TV reporting. The three friends work for IK-2 TV, a cable channel, broadcasting to inmates from inside the prison. While interviewing other convicts and working in different parts of the prison, they discover a lot of new and exciting things about the place, and the people living there and their own hidden talents.

In this episode, the IK-2 TV team meet some of those who started the channel. Former convicts and now TV producers, Sergey Kaynov and Dmitry Makurin, visit the facility at their successors’ invitation to take part in a movie about the prison. They tell about the passion they found in prison and how it kept doing once released. Sergey and Dmitry also bring new equipment, including a professional camera and a real microphone. While former inmates receive a warm welcome at the facility, Boris goes out to visit his little son.
