Gordon behind bars

New show on BBC still DLing so have not watched yet.

Gordon Ramsay thinks it's time Britain's prisoners paid their way. There are 88,000 prisoners in the UK and it costs the taxpayer £38,000 to keep each of them locked up for a year. Gordon's given himself six months to set up a successful food business behind bars. His aim: to get prisoners cooking food on the inside, to sell on the outside. He arrives at Brixton Prison in south London, a category B Victorian jail, packed with drug dealers, burglars, muggers and thieves - some very unsavoury characters. First Gordon needs to pick 12 men for his Bad Boys Brigade business, but none of them can even scramble an egg.

His BBC stuff is usually better this one may be stretching it though. There was a pretty good Canadian show that had a Chef employing parolees and the I think the second season was set in AU can not recall the name.
