Christchurch Story for 8 July 2010 - Jailhouse

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:35 pm on 8 July 2010

Kirsty Henderson and Grant Parrett opened Jail House Accommodation in the mid 1990's. One of the top-rated hostels for its size in Australasia; the jailhouse theme is in-keeping with the history of the building itself. Once known as Mountford Cell Block, it catered for both sentenced and remand prisoners. Producer Sonia Yee took a tour through the cell block with owner Grant Parrett.
