Prison - 1: The Screws
If you are sentenced to a term of imprisonment it is to a local prison - like Lincoln - that you will probably go first. There you will meet violent men, petty thieves, those looking for warmth and shelter and the people serving the longest sentences of all, the screws - prison officers.
In this, the first of a two-part enquiry into prisons and the alternatives to prison, JEREMY JAMES talks to the men who run Lincoln to find out why they do the job; how they measure success.

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.
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.
