HMP Belmarsh: Evil Behind Bars: Episode 2 (Channel 5 Wednesday 10 January 2024)

Prison Brides

In the second episode of HMP Belmarsh: Evil Behind Bars, we are given an inside look into the workings of one of the UK’s most notorious prisons. Airing on Channel 5 on January 10, 2024, at 9:00 pm, this episode explores the changing dynamics and challenges faced by both inmates and staff at HMP Belmarsh.

Originally designed for Category A criminals and notorious terrorists when it was built in 1991, HMP Belmarsh has evolved over the years. Today, it primarily serves as an inner-city remand prison, housing local men who are awaiting trial. With approximately 660 inmates, around 60% of whom are unsentenced, Belmarsh is a melting pot of individuals involved in various criminal activities. Gang affiliations are a common occurrence among the younger inmate population.

Containing the trouble and violence between rival gangs is a constant task for the prison’s 300 or so officers. Over time, the prison has had to adapt to accommodate its growing inmate population by cramming in more beds. Former inmates share stories of what life was like when three men shared a single cell, with individuals convicted of serious crimes coexisting with those convicted of petty offenses.

Among the notable inmates housed at HMP Belmarsh were the Hatton Garden Robbers, a group of elderly criminals who executed a major heist. The principal thieves were sentenced to six to seven years and were sent to the famously austere High Security Unit of Belmarsh. Barry George, who was awaiting trial, was also held at Belmarsh and eventually convicted of the murder of Jill Dando. However, some former inmates remember meeting George and believing he was incapable of murder. George was later freed, eight years after his conviction.
