Before Wentworth, Bad Girls and Prisoner: Cell Block H there was Within These Walls! Hard-hitting and often controversial, Within These Walls gave an authentic portrayal of day-to-day prison life in the 1970s. Intense and emotional, the series reflected the shift in emphasis from punishment to rehabilitation as it focused on the trials of a newly appointed governor and her attempts to liberalise the regime of Stone Park, H.M. Prison for women. Starring Googie Withers as the principled and compassionate prison governor (followed in later series by Katharine Blake and Sarah Lawson), this landmark series showcased strong writing and direction and remains a high point of British television drama.
