Like most people, documentary-maker Chris Atkins didn't spend much time thinking about prisons. But after becoming embroiled in a dodgy scheme to fund his latest film, he was sent down for five years. His new home would be HMP Wandsworth, one of the oldest, largest, and most dysfunctional prisons in Europe. Full of horrifying, moving, and darkly funny stories and with a cast of characters ranging from wily drug dealers to corrupt screws, A Bit of a Stretch reveals the true scale of our prison crisis and why it is costing us all.
