Birmingham's Winson Green prison is to be the subject of a television documentary called The Real Porridge.
Cameras started filming staff at the Victorian prison in August and the documentary will be broadcast on BBC3 next year.
The fly-on-the-wall show takes its title from the hit 70s sitcom Porridge, starring the late Ronnie Barker as indomitable con Norman Stanley Fletcher, incarcerated at the fictional Slade Prison.
HMP Birmingham, in Winson Green Road, was built in 1849 for adult male prisoners and has recently undergone a multi-million pound upgrade, creating an additional 450 prisoner places.
The prison now has a population of 1,402 and serves the Crown and magistrates courts of Birmingham, Stafford and Wolverhampton, and the magistrates' courts of Burton, Cannock, Lichfield, Rugeley, Sutton Coldfield and Tamworth.
