Lockup continues with a brand new series. An extraordinary documentary archive of life behind bars, Lock Up allows the viewer to experience some of the most fascinating and violent places in the world behind the walls of America’s prisons. Documenting the dangerous, horrendous and monotonous conditions of the two million men and women who are locked up in the United States, this informational series offers never before seen access to a scary world most Americans pray they’ll never see up close. As Lock Up takes a close look at these ageing, overcrowded facilities it asks a very hard question – is the most expensive correctional system in the world working?
