About the Show

With nothing but time on their hands, every prisoner fantasises about escape. While few actually attempt to breakout, some prisoners’ ingenuity and sheer audacity sees them successfully use obscure objects to bust out of some of the most secure prisons in the world. Each breakout is told by the dangerous and often highly intelligent criminals who escape, and the professional, determined law enforcement teams who hunt them down.
