8:30 Window on the World
Tonight's Window on the World comes from Uganda where most of the country's 54,000 inmates are now serving an economic purpose, working for the benefit of an elite collection of private farmers and other business interests - even though half of them have not been convicted of any crime. BBC Journalist Ed Butler speaks to current and former prisoners to find out how the system works, and asks: is the country breaking its international pledges on prisoner treatment?
