Narrator MICHAEL DEAN
Once a year the convicts of Oklahoma State Penitentiary in America's south west become cowboys for their rodeo behind the walls.
Last summer's event seemed certain to be cancelled when three convicts were stabbed, two guards held hostage, four prisoners escaped and a cell block was set on fire. Warden Al Murphy decided that the rodeo would still go on and the convicts once again volunteered to risk their lives for a few dollars prize money.
For three days and nights they filed out of their 'special reserved seats', a cage topped by barbed wire, to delight a crowd including family and friends, in events like ' Money the Hard Way ' - snatching a pouch from the horns of a Brahma bull. Just part of the action in Jailhouse Rodeo.
