In this program, the problems facing the “ex-con” who leaves prison with a record and mingles with a public that forgets he is a criminal but that cannot forget that he has been imprisoned are discussed by criminologist Joseph D. Lohman. Filmed scenes illustrate the prisoner’s alienation from society and the lack of procedures to reintegrate him into the community. An inmate describes experiences he had while free which led him back to crime and prison. Hannum and Lohman discuss the aspects of prison life needed to teach skills and orient inmates toward release and the problems of return to society.
