Default MSNBC Inside Holman Prison

I have a family member that is at Holman prison in Alabama. We were told that a show should air on MSNBC that would show INSIDE of the prison and the inmates. it was supposed to air this past sunday some time. i searched the MSNBC web site, but couldnt find anything. there WAS a show on there last night at 8 p.m and 11 that was about a inmate on Death Row... but it never showed any other inmates. Does anyone know about any upcoming shows, and or old news show that might air again, or how i could get a copy of any??? thanks michele

Default I was interviewed...

Hi
MSNBC interviewd both me and my fiance this past tuesday (june 27) and told us it would air sometime relatively soon....G thanks! They interviewed him for a full hour in his cell and then filmed us in the visitation with mics on and then interviewed me afterwards. I hope they do not butcher this up in editing. I hope I don't regret this. My fiance is one of the juvenile offenders released from death row so they were interested in that. The reporter said they have no access to death row so this was the best way for them to find out about it. We will find out when it airs, and as soon as I know, I will post it here.

please let me know if you hear anything. My man is on d.r at Holman but a really good friend of his was a juvenile who has been moved from there into general population and my aunt writes to him so it would be really nice if she could see where he is. Also I have only ever seen pictures of the outside of Holman never the inside.
Thank you
Lisax

My husband watched a movie on life time a few wks ago that was filmed at Donaldson. One could email life time and see if that would tell the name of the movie and if they would show it again.....God Bless All...mother1952

you can't find it on the msnbc site in their listing? Weird.

I've watched Lock Up a few times and honestly, it really bothered me to see the inside. I mean, I almost cried about how they had to live.

With you all having loved ones being on there, just please think about watching it.

tinkr30 "With you all having loved ones being on there, just please think about watching it."

i have also watched a few of the "lock up" shows on MSNBC, and NO, it doesnt look NICE in their.. and im sure it's ALOT worse than it shows, because they have the power to edit out anything and everything they want to unlike the inmates.

I want to thank Nadia, for any and all updates
this is something that i hope they didnt butcher up when they edited it, "he" said he actualy laughed while on camera, so beyond everything else.. i'd be nice to see him smile... but im SURE he had more than a few things not so nice that he said.. or would have liked to of said. plus i'd like to see what they actualy will show compared to what all he actualy said to them.

Hope everyone is haven a great day!!

Default No updates yet...

Hey everyone!
I still have not heard any new news on the show. It has not been cheduled to air yet so that is why it is not yet on the MSNBC site. MSNBC has their line-up of documentaries lined up for a little while so I am pretty sure it will not air until Fall. I am staying on top of this, but please, if anyone hear any solid news about it, let me know! In the meantime, I am constantly on the MSNBC website, and am trying very much so to reach the producer that we interviewed with; it is very hard to contact her..
Thanks!!!
Nadia

Still no updates...my fiance was given a questionaire by msnbc to fill out so I assume they have not yet completed the episode. I will surely post when i get any definite date. He said that the producer had mentioned the fall...so keep an ear open for that time frame!

I wanted to let you all know I found this on the MSNBC website. Lock Up Inside Holman Prison is set to air on Dec. 4 at 10:00 p.m. I thought yall would like to know that. I am not sure if that is eastern or central time though, but at least we know a date.

LOCKUP, which airs on MSNBC TV, is a documentary series that gives a glimpse into life behind America's maximum-security prison walls.
Dec. 4: LOCKUP Inside: Holman
Dec. 11: LOCKUP Inside: Indiana State Prison
Dec. 18: LOCKUP Inside: Alaska

Yay! I found it also!! I have been looking for this for 3 weeks. Anyhow I pasted exactly what the website said so ya'll can see it just as I did.
FINALLY!
