In this powerful four-part series, Ted Koppel penetrates the myth of high-tech maximum-security prisons. Far from being the comfortable country club life that the public imagines, Koppel gives viewers an education in how the most violent prisoners live. The series illustrates that the ultimate in solitary confinement is dehumanizing for all of society. With the complete cooperation of the prison staff and many inmates in Cell Block C of the Estelle Prison in Huntsville, Ala., Nightline’s mission is to show the public exactly what their votes and their tax dollars are buying.
