Inside the Worlds Toughest Prisons: Series 3
Investigative journalist Raphael Rowe, who was once wrongfully convicted of murder, visits prisons in Colombia, Costa Rica, Romania and Norway.
Part 1: Costa Rica
Though he’s no stranger to life behind bars, Raphael Rowe concedes that Costa Rica’s La Reforma Prison is certainly among the most intimidating.
Part 2: Colombia
While spending a week inside Bogot’s fortress-like prison, Raphael Rowe must negotiate the oppressive atmosphere and deal with an ominous threat.
Part 3: Romania
Raphael Rowe spends a week at a maximum security prison in Craiova, Romania, where the inmates include rapists, murderers and contract killers.
Part 4: Norway
Many prisons aim to punish and demean inmates. Norway’s Halden Prison — as Raphael Rowe is about to see for himself — does things differently.
