The Secret Life of Prisons podcast

Nov 25, 2019

This special episode of The Secret of Prisons was recorded live at the Longford Lecture at Church House, in London, on Thursday 21st November. The 2019 Longford Lecture was given  by the former Metropolitan Police Commissioner Ian, Lord Blair of Boughton, to a packed audience. Lord Blair spoke to presenters Phil Maguire and Paula Harriot before speaking on stage, alongside the broadcaster Jon Snow, a Longford trustee and chair of the event. Lord Blair’s lecture implored all political parties in the election campaign to back a “systematic, holistic review” of the criminal justice system, which he argued was “not yet actually broken but it is so neglected as to be a matter of serious national concern.”
