Aylesbury prison has generated quite a bit of interest throughout the UK.  ITV captured more than five million viewers when it presented a documentary on the inner  workings of Her Majesty’s Prison  there in Aylesbury.  Hopefully people who are considering crimes watched it and determined it wasn’t a place they want to move into!
