A number of patients tried to escape during the reign of Broadmoor's first head, Dr John Meyer. Some of them succeeded.
This was a period when everything was new at Broadmoor, and when any flaws in security were bound to be tested.
'Escape from Broadmoor' is now a chapter in 'Broadmoor Revealed.' See link below for more details.
