Raphael Rowe is the host of the show, and he looks at all the toughest prisons around the world. In fact, he actually goes in and spends nights and days as an inmate in order to experience how it is.
What is unique about the show is that Rowe, who is now a journalist, used to be an inmate in a UK prison. He was wrongfully convicted for murder and aggravated assault in 1990 and sentenced to life imprisonment. He was eventually released after around 12 years from Old Bailey.
