Prisons; Sex culture (Radio 4 series: Thinking Allowed)

This episode of Radio 4's Thinking Allowed series includes two segments, the first on prisons. Laurie Taylor visits England’s oldest prison, the Tower of London, to talk to ex-prison governor and criminologist, Professor David Wilson, about a new project whose aim is to bring fans of prison drama into contact with penal experts and reformers.

The second segment looks at sex culture. Laurie Taylor talks to two leading feminist theorists, Rosalind Gill and Professor Angela McRobbie, about growing concerns over our increasingly frank sex culture and asks is what Angela McRobbie has called Porn Chic, a victory or rather a reverse in terms of progressing towards sexual equality?
