CRIME & INVESTIGATION – Saturday 2 April, 5.30pm

This thought-provoking documentary series looks at the emotional effect on relationships and family life when a loved one is sent to prison.

Love, Life & Prison follows six couples and families as they deal with love and life after a prison sentence. This cutting-edge series discovers how they cope with the emotional turmoil and financial strains, and explores a different, lesser-known side of prison life, focused on the loved ones left waiting on the outside. Many families are put under enormous emotional and financial stress when someone goes to prison, which can sometimes be hard to recover from. Each story is a frank and sometimes emotional account of six relationships affected in very different ways by life behind bars.
