Holloway Prison was built in 1852 in what was then a desirable suburb, and because the neighbours objected the architects had to design something that would improve the amenities not spoil them. So, they made it look like a medieval castle. But now they're pulling down Holloway and, on the same site, they're going to build a new prison costing Â£6,000,000.
What will this prison of the future be like? What must it be like? In the final programme of this two-part enquiry, Man Alive brings together those who designed the new prison and the women prisoners who appeared in last week's film.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
