In this program, criminologist Joseph D. Lohman explains that the failure of the American prison system is due to attempts to induce reform through external processes of security, harsh discipline and regimented life. Scudder and Lohman discuss the progress gained in self-governing prisons where the inmates’ role is changed from one of responding to orders to one of a creative source. Films are used to show inmates in various prison settings and an inmate is interviewed to bring out his feelings about these types of prisons.
