Working Behind Bars

Edi Stark visits HMP Barlinnie to meet some of the male and female prison officers working in Scotland's largest jail.
She hears how the demands and stresses of the job have changed since the riots and hostage taking of the late 80s and asks why so many of the staff claim to love working in the Bar-L, a place most people don't want to be.
