Time & Again, produced by Switchback and independent radio production company Beautiful Strangers, provides a fresh and searingly honest glimpse into the thoughts and experiences of six young men who have recently been to prison and built a new life away from crime on their release with Switchback’s support.
In six self-contained first-person testimonies, the young men, Mike, Serge, Nick, Guellor, Chris and Omar* speak with striking candour and maturity. Each 15 minute episode is striking for its emotional depth – running from sorrow, fear, grit and grief to hope, warmth, innocence and humour.
How does it feel to come of age in some of the UK’s most disadvantaged neighbourhoods? What really drives inner city crime? What’s it like being sent to jail at a young age and released with nothing? We hear a lot about these issues but we hardly ever hear from the people with the best insight of all: young prison leavers themselves. Time & Again flips the script.
