British prisoners have to endure the most inhumane and barbaric conditions imaginable, so why do so many of them keep going back for more?

Former inmate and documentary maker Chris Atkins has spent the last six years tracking the fortunes of a dozen repeat offenders to understand why the state so often fails to keep them from getting into trouble. Featuring funny, wild and poignant stories, Time After Time exploits Atkins' unprecedented access to the criminal underworld to understand why the system actually makes reoffending all but inevitable for most ex-prisoners.

Chaired by Sheilagh Matheson.
