Feltham Sings

Feltham Sings

This documentary is – without a shadow of a doubt – one of the most innovative and engrossing documentaries ever aired on British television. Set in Feltham Young Offenders Institution in the United Kingdom, both inmates and staff offer a glimpse into their life within the walls of the prison and – in the case of the prisoners – into their previous life outside. But instead of the documentary participants simply telling their stories, they are given the opportunity to sing, rap and quote poetry about their feelings, lives and dreams. This truly engrossing documentary won a British Academy of Film and Television Arts Award for Documentary as well as an Ivor Novello Award for Best Original Music for Television.
