Five Days Inside

Five Days Inside

What happens behind the closed doors of an institution? A drug rehab centre, a care home for the elderly, a centre for the severely handi- capped, a clinic for eating disorders, a centre for mental illness and many more institutions.

We follow our host into different closed worlds to understand what it is like to live there and to work there. Five Days Inside is an immersive format that uncovers hidden lives, unsung heroes and unforgettable stories.

In the four-episode spin-off series Life on the Outside, our host revisits the people that made deep impressions to see how they get on with their lives when back home on their own.
