Green Wings

Documentary series introducing listeners to the pioneering projects fighting the climate crisis from inside prisons

6x 10min, by Smoke Trail, first aired March 2023

We take the biggest issue of our time – the planetary crisis – inside British prisons for the first time, revealing the unlikely stories where criminal and climate justice intertwine. Green Wings follows the journeys of six ex-offenders as they seek to put the planet’s and their own mistakes behind them.

From aquaponics to bee-keeping, we discover the ideas that might reform British justice, and be a climate answer to all of us.

Broadcasting on National Prison Radio and a network of community stations, our show may help to reduce reoffending and help the planet too.
