Life Behind Bars: Visiting Hour


Documentary exploring the relationships between prisoners and visitors over a one-hour visit at Low Moss Prison in Scotland.

HMP Low Moss, located just outside Glasgow, is home to 784 men serving a total of almost 15,000 years behind bars. Their crimes range from mass murder to tax evasion, and men are serving sentences of months, years or even decades. But there is one room in the prison where those serving time inside meet the outside world... the visiting room.

The documentary will explore how relationships are maintained between the men serving time and their family, friends and children who are waiting for them on the outside.

Life Behind Bars: Visiting Hour aired Tuesday 4th July 2017 on Channel 4.
