3CR's live prison broadcasts, unique in Australia, go to air this NAIDOC Week. Tune into Dame Phyllis Frost Centre on Monday July 6, 11 – 2pm; Barwon Prison on Tuesday July 7, 11 – 2pm; Fulham Prison (pre-recorded) on Wednesday July 8, 12 – 2pm; and Port Phillip Prison on Thursday July 9, 12 – 4pm.
The broadcasts form part of 3CR's Beyond the Bars. Highlights of the broadcasts will be released as the Beyond the Bars CD later this year.
