- A Prison Officer's Story
- By: Neil Samworth
- Narrated by: Jonathan Keeble
- Length: 8 hrs and 41 mins
A jaw-dropping account of life as a prison officer in one of the country's most notorious jails. Neil ‘Sam’ Samworth spent 11 years working as a prison officer in HMP Manchester, aka Strangeways. A tough Yorkshireman with a soft heart, Sam had to deal with it all - gangsters and gangbangers, terrorists and psychopaths, addicts and the mentally ill. Men who should not be locked up and men who should never be let out. Strangeways is a shocking and at times darkly funny account of life in a high-security prison.

Good read brought back many memories both happy and sad of my time as an OSG at Manchester prison and later as a member of the I MB at Forest Bank
The writer displays a compassionate, firm and fairDescription of his past vocation
