This Australian series has, after 692 episodes, received cult status all over the world. The series takes place in Wentworth, a prison in Australia. Wentworth is a high-security female prison. The women are there for all sorts of crimes. We get to follow how they got there, their life in the prison and what becomes of them afterwards. We also get to follow the staff, their work in the prison and their personal relationships. Written by
Wentworth was a high-security prison. Other jails seen in the series were Barnhurst (aka "The Farm", a low-security country prison farm for men and women), Woodridge (a mens' prison) and Blackmoor ("The Black Hole", a maximum-security institution for serious male/female offenders); the equally-fictional Parkwoods was located in Western Australia. Real-life prisons Pentridge, Fairlea and Mulawa were occasionally alluded to. See more »

Prisoner Cell Block H was a mainstay on T.V here in the U.K, back in the 80's/early 90's it was shown every week, it was great fun, it had everything, great characters (good and bad), brilliant story lines and it was very addictive, it was truly great, lots of the actors have since appeared in programmes like Home and Away and Neighbours.
In this day and age we have a prison drama series called "Bad girls", it try's to be like Prisoner in many ways, but there will only ever be one "Prisoner Cell Block H", this was a classic and i will never forget it.
If you're a younger person and are a fan of prison drama's or generally great T.V programmes then i urge you to seek out the awesome Prisoner Cell Block H, you will soon become addicted.
