Ever wondered what it would be like to spend time with a condemned prisoner? Now’s your chance to find out. Final Hours In The Condemned Cell, is a prison officer’s inside story. Robert Douglas spent six weeks in Bristol Prison in 1963 as a companion for condemned 23-year-old murderer Russell Pascoe. Pascoe’s hanging proved to be the penultimate execution carried out by Harry Allen. As Robert Douglas’s account mentions, anti-capital punishment campaigners protested outside Bristol Prison before the execution. And just nine months later, on August 13th, 1964, the last judicial hangings in Britain were carried out. A truly fascinating read. Enjoy the read – and let us know what you think!
