Plunge head-first into the gritty underworld of America’s most fearsome prisons.
America’s prisons are teeming with dangerous and conniving criminals - who stop at nothing to get their way. In this world of absolutes, predators stalk their next prey, gang commanders order hits from isolation, and inmates are armed with deadly weapons. Here, only the strong- and devious- survive. But the prisons are striking back. Institutional weapons of choice include state-of-the-art surveillance and old school isolation. Officers are armed to the hilt with steel batons and pepper spray.
Featuring three thrilling hours, Lockdown: Inside America’s Prisons goes inside this real-life war zone with National Geographic’s exclusive camera access and astonishing inmate interviews.
