In the first study to explore the growth of radio stations in prisons, this book documents the history of the Prison Radio Association (PRA) in the United Kingdom, the first organisation of its kind internationally. Through a detailed case study of the formation of National Prison Radio, this book outlines the process through which relatively small-scale media activism, based on prisoners' rights, came to be an intrinsic part of prison culture, playing a central role in institutional operations.
