Staring at the Wall

Saturday 7 June 2008 21:30-22:00 (Radio 3)

Alan Dein captures the sounds and thoughts of everyday life just outside the walls of Pentonville prison in North London, building up a portrait of enclosure, freedom and imagination.

He talks to Bob, who was born close to Pentonville and grew up in the area. Bob rented a flat across the road with his girlfriend, became an inmate himself and watched her comings and goings on the street outside. Now a free man for many years he lives just feet from the prison wall, but this time on the outside, staring at the wall first thing in the morning and last thing at night.

Duration:

30 minutes
