The Hatton Garden Heist

Philip Palmer's drama explores the facts and the fictions surrounding one of Britain's most audacious crimes.

Philip Palmer's drama explores one of the most audacious crimes of the last thirty years, in which a gang of thieves stole jewellery and cash with an estimated value of up to £200M from a secure vault in the heart of London.

The heist was a media sensation for months in 2015. The legend grew up that this was the perfect heist. However the criminals involved are now all in jail. All except one. The man who the press called Mr Ginger. The man who called himself Basil. No one knows who he is. The story of how he came to be part of this gang may or may not be true. It's a story that spans thirty years, and involves many of the most notorious characters in the world of organised crime. It's a story of murder, vengeance and gold.

Director: Sasha Yevtushenko.
