Episode Information

On the outside, they were America's most wanted villains. Inside, they were just another name and number, struggling to stay alive. Inside Alcatraz goes beyond the legend to find out what life was really like in the world's most notorious prison. By looking at how its most famous residents survived – or didn't – behind its walls, we expose the brutal reality of prison life. From the infamous public enemies to the small time bank robbers, these men invented survival strategies – to make it through the long hours in their tiny cells and to make it through the darkness of punishment in D Block. Some tried to flee, but most just did their time.
