Brixton is one of the country's oldest and most notorious prisons, set to mark its 200th anniversary this year.
The House on the Hill tells the story of this remarkable, experimental institution by recalling the colourful lives of some of its residents - among them rock star Mick Jagger, politician Oswald Moseley, serial killer John Christie and philosopher Bertrand Russell - illustrated with fascinating, never-before-seen photographs.
Christopher Impey is an award-winning journalist and radio producer. He spent nine years working in HMP Brixton where he was Managing Editor of National Prison Radio - the world's first national radio station for prisoners.
