The life of the long-stay women prisoners in Styal.
Looks at the long-stay prisoners, who have certain privileges. Barbara goes to Fry House - how will she fit in? Joan, a persistent offender with twenty-five previous convictions, comes back inside for Christmas, and bargains for a single cell.
Made in 1982, this film reflects the cultural attitudes and language of the time it was made. The issues raised are timeless. The film quality may not be to modern standards.
Part of the ‘Living in Styal’ series.
Other parts are: Comings and Goings, Assessment and Bleak.
A four part documentary which shows the lives of women in the secure prison Styal in Cheshire. The production team were allowed to film private conversations between prisoners themselves and prison officers, and between the staff, and so we have a revealing glimpse of what life is really like inside, from all points of view, and share the mental pressures that both prisoners and staff face.
