In the light of April's riots, a chance to see again the award-winning series ineightparts about life in one of Britain's overcrowded maximum security prisons.
The Block. D1 is Strangeways's punishment landing, known as the Block. It is a place where men are sent to be punished for breaking prison rules. There is also a segregation unit where prisoners regarded as too subversive to live in the main prison are placed by the governor for 'good order and discipline'. The officers who work here must be constantly on their guard, for it is a place of tension where the 'smash up' is almost commonplace. Tonight's programme offers a glimpse of cons' law (one inmate must never be seen to grass on another), and witnesses the tension and anguish of a prisoner being placed in the controversial strip cell.
