To mark the 40th anniversary of Porridge, Gold, part of UKTV’s award-winning portfolio of channels, teamed up with Phil McIntyre Television to create three special hour-long documentaries about the much-loved series.

Porridge: The Inside Out told the real story behind the iconic programme, from the pilot episode, through to the Christmas specials and the spin-off follow up. In a TV exclusive, viewers will be taken on a tour of the pivotal places Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais visited during the creation and development of the series, including the pub where they first met, the prisons they researched, and the little known filming locations they used.
