Prison Documentaries

Few average citizens experience life behind bars, but RTD’s prison documentaries gives you a chance to see what goes on behind penitentiary walls. From convict moms caring for their tots in jail and inmates producing their own TV series to beauty pageants for female prisoners and art programs for mentally ill inmates, some aspects of prison life may surprise you. Or pay a visit to Russia’s highest security prison to get a glimpse into the minds of its most vicious killers. Some of RTD’s prison documentaries also show how ex-cons deal with reintegrating into life on the outside after they’re released.
