There’s a documentary on Belmarsh on YouTube, from around the mid 2000s ( maybe 2006? ) . It follows a group of Poelts who were trained there. I wonder if many of them are still in the job...

I’ve seen that one and wondered just the same!

Be interesting to see the prison now and the difference between the one I’m at, I’m based at a very large open plan prison, we have one next door that’s the same as HMP Bullingdon etc and it’s amazing seeing how different they are for the same categories and us doing the same jobs

I had a family member who worked at Belmarsh, they knew a few of them from the documentary. Including the Muslim guy who was there still there just a few years ago.
I just checked it on YouTube, it was actually made in 2004!
Be interesting to see tonight that’s for sure!

I’m yet to watch it but going to tonight. From the guys at training today it’s apparently very good!

Once I’ve finished walking and attempting to tire out a 6 month old spaniel I’ll be something myself up on the sofa for a watch

Just finished watching it and I was quite impressed, certainly unusual to see that much access given to such a high security prison!

The adjudication showed just the type of prisoners you will come up against, denying any involvement but seen on cctv hitting an officer and another prisoner!
Also very interesting to see the effect of segregation on a certain right wing prisoner!

Only thing I don’t quite get is 6 months of filming for 2 episodes...how much has been cut out just to make good tv?

I thought it was a great watch, a damn big place by the looks of it, and the seg unit !

Ross had a wobble on after having a sniff of that vape pen !

Shame it is only 2 episodes mind

Well, after watching all of part 2, I must say I’m quite disappointed.....not as good as I was expecting, especially after 6 months of filming
