In this interview headliner Stephen Fry speaks of his own experience behind bars, his relationship with the staff there, the unwritten rules that must be followed, and what changes he would like to see in the prison system if given the chance.

We are sharing this video of Stephen Fry's interview from Wayout TV's Christmas Conversations as the finale of our week long Different Voices interviews. These interviews offer a unique perspective on prison life and an insight into the work being done by PeoplePlus to reduce re-offending, and offer an alternative path for prisoners.

Stephen talks about his experience in prison where he spent 3 months aged 17 for credit card fraud. He speaks about his relationship with the staff there, of how he felt walking in and what he spent his time doing while on remand, as well as his feelings on the justice system as a whole.
