    The footage seen here was shot for the Thames Television current affairs programme "This Week".

    Reducing the clip's current date range of 1970-79, the footage was shot on 8 September 1971.

    Further footage from the same day can be seen in clip 3345.08.

    The prison seen in this clip is San Quentin.
