To many foreigners, Bali's Kerobokan jail is a place of creepy fascination, a repository of misery in an island playground. But what's it really like in there? For the first time a TV crew has obtained virtually unrestricted access to all corners of Kerobokan's men's prison and spend a week roaming the jail, filming and interviewing prisoners and guards to capture life inside.
