Death Row U.S.AStreaming Video - 2014
Huntsville, Texas, a friendly, bucolic university town, is also known as "The Execution Capital of the World." This sobering program takes a close look at both sides of Huntsville, as it profiles deceased inmates Bettie Lou Beets, Billy George Hughes, and Timothy Gribble. Interviews with Huntsville's mayor, prison officials, legal counsel, victims' family members, former inmates, death penalty advocates and opponents, and, only days before his execution, convict Gribble himself offer a broad perspective on the American penal system and prison industry. The program also goes inside the Death House, traveling the same route that inmates follow on their last walk.
