At 4:50pm on September 19, 1986, Sam Ormes looked into an old video camera and declared, “Good afternoon, inmates of the Dade County Jail! It blows my mind to announce that ICTV is on the air.” Inmate Corrections Television (ICTV) was Sam Ormes’ brainchild; an in-house cable TV station piped onto every channel and every TV set inside the Miami Dade County Jail & Pre-Trial Detention Center. No other jail in the nation had ever attempted such a venture.
