Observational documentary series filmed over five months in the UK's most notorious young offenders institution. HMP Aylesbury houses some of the most dangerous criminals in Britain, including murderers, rapists, violent gang members and paedophiles. One in five of the inmates is serving a life or indeterminate sentence, but what makes this prison exceptional and disturbing is that the oldest among them is just 21. London gangs are dominant here, which leaves young men from other parts of the country feeling isolated and vulnerable. Many have to be segregated for their own protection, while harder cases can expect to end up in an even more secure 'prison within the prison'. In the first episode, there are shocking scenes as a group of newly-arrived northerners join forces and take another prisoner hostage, in a bid to negotiate a 'ship out' closer to home
