Raphael Rowe: ‘I Spent 12 Years In Prison For A Crime I Didn’t Commit. Here’s What I Learned’
Published on 24 Aug 2020
Investigative journalist Raphael Rowe is the latest person to join us for our #BigQuestions series.
There are few people who possess his intimate knowledge and experience of life behind bars.
After serving 12 years in jail for a crime he has always maintained he did not commit, Rowe has forged an almost two-decade-long career as an investigative journalist. He currently presents Netflix’s documentary series Inside the World’s Toughest Prisons.
Our interview was wide-ranging, but one of the points we found most interesting was this: “There are so many people in British prisons that don’t deserve to be there.”
Thanks for joining us, Raphael.

EachOther is a UK-focused charity that uses independent journalism, story-telling and film-making to put the human into human rights. The digital content we produce is grounded in the lived experience of ordinary people affected by human rights issues. We involve them in the process of developing their stories, rather than talking for or over them. Theirs are the voices we platform and amplify to our lay audience of over a million viewers each year. In this way, we hope to grow public support for human rights here in the UK.
