Life after solitary confinement

After spending 43 years in solitary confinement, a US judge has ordered Albert Woodfox, one of the so-called Angola Three, to be let out of prison. Yet the Louisiana Attorney General asked the court to block his release and they have temporarily done so until at least Friday.

The BBC's Rajini Vaidyanthan looks at what life could be like for Woodfox should he eventually win his freedom.
