'I'm frightened every time I go in': inside the world's toughest prisons
Having spent 12 years behind bars for a murder he didn't commit, Raphael Rowe has experienced some incredibly tough conditions in prisons around the UK. Since his release, the 54-year-old broadcast journalist and presenter has been on a journey to meet some of the world's most hardened and dangerous prisoners.
Raphael joins us to chat about the sixth season of Netflix's hit docu-series ‘Inside The World's Toughest Prisons’ where he visits a maximum security prison in Moldova, spends a week in a brutal Cyprus prison and shares a cell with a violent mob boss in Bosnia.
He said: "Holly, I am frightened every time I go in. Every time I enter a prison, I step off the prison van, I go through this experience of being strip searched and it takes me back to the reality of what I experienced for 12 years because it happened to me".
