In "Prison State", premiering April 29 on PBS and at pbs.org/FRONTLINE, FRONTLINE goes inside Beecher Terrace, a housing project in Kentucky, where nearly every resident spends time behind bars. Mark Bolton, the top corrections officer there, says things have to change, “We’re locking up people that we’re angry at; we ought to be using this space for people that we’re afraid of."
Funding for FRONTLINE is provided through the support of PBS viewers and by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Major funding for FRONTLINE is provided by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. Additional funding is provided by the Park Foundation and by the FRONTLINE Journalism Fund.
