This chapter details the context, content, and effects of the Face to Face programme in furthering the development of the Prison Radio Association (PRA), and argues that the case demonstrates the potential of prison radio to promote, facilitate, and inform restorative justice practice. First, the chapter examines the restorative justice theme within the contemporary political context before turning to the programme itself, the wider reception, and its impact and significance for the PRA. Through discussion of the increasingly victim-centred reporting of crime within mainstream media, the chapter shows that prison radio not only provides a voice for prisoners, but is able to empower victims of crime.

Keywords:   Face to Face, PRA, Prison Radio Association, restorative justice, contemporary politics, victims, crime
