Talking Politics on Prisons

On Radio 4 this weekend just gone was a Talking Politics programme on the role of prisons in society. Sir David Ramsbotham, Theodore Dalrymple, Nick Cohen and Ann Widdecombe all present some interesting and salient points - so can we expect to see some thinking above and beyond the Dredd-esque "lock up the juves" mentality?

I'll try to get it as an mp3/ogg sometime soon, but in the meantime you can stream it from the BBC.

Update: The programme is now available in .ogg format as a 19MB download.
