For over 146 years Broadmoor hospital has gained a reputation as the last stop for some of the UK’s most dangerous criminals. It was thought of as the place where mentally unstable offenders would be incarcerated for the rest of their lives – until a recent and radical change.
Since its foundation 150 years ago, Broadmoor Hospital has fascinated the public and the media, but there are many misconceptions about what it does and the patients it is responsible for.
Now for the first time, it has opened its doors to a TV camera crew, giving unprecedented insight into its patients and the work that is carried out to treat and rehabilitate them.
The film is the result of a five-year collaboration between the trust and award-winning director Olivia Lichtenstein and producer Jonathan Levi.
Filmed over nine months, from Christmas 2013 to August 2014, the crew were given unique access and support from Broadmoor staff to help them build a complete picture of the hospital from admission to discharge.
