Prisoner appears at Radio Fest

Prisoner Tis, who won a Sony Radio Academy Award this year, has appeared on stage at The Radio Festival in Nottingham.

Tis won a Bronze for his interview on electric Radio Brixton with the only MP to have been imprisoned – Jonathan Aitken. He has never done radio before, and has been granted day release to appear in front of hundreds of delegates from the radio industry.

And although he's still a prisoner – he's not at Brixton anymore though.

Talking to 5 Live's Richard Bacon, Tis says he took what he learnt and gave others advice, encouraging them to get involved in prison radio. He says his future is a lot brighter now than when he went into prison. He says: "I could have never imagined on the night I was arrested that I would meet the people I have in Brixton – and win an award."
