The Women of Hydebank Wood College

In the process of creating the documentary, “From the Inside Out: How a Prison Becomes a College,” I sat in on an ICT class for women at the prison and spoke to them about Hydebank’s rebranding and how it affected them. I was drawn especially to the character of Elaine, whose story grabbed me in the short half-hour I had with them.

I wrote the script in the style of a “From Our Own Correspondent” clip. It was recorded at the BBC Northern Ireland studios in May, 2016.
