Published: 8 Sep 2013 09:300 comments

A documentary about Broadmoor Hospital and some of its notorious inmates is due to be screened to celebrate its 150th anniversary.

A documentary is due to be aired on Channel Five on Monday, September 30, at 9pm, and will include Gordon Lowe, who is the author of 'Escape from Broadmoor: The Trials and Strangulations of John Thomas Straffen’.

Published earlier this year, it delves into the life of Britain’s longest serving prisoner, John Straffen.

Taking Mr Lowe just over a year to write, 'Escape from Broadmoor’ delves into the life of a man who he believes killed just to annoy police.

For the full interview with Mr Lowe, buy this week's Bracknell News, just 60p.
