The Great Train Robbery's Missing Mastermind?

The Great Train Robbery's Missing Mastermind?

About this programme

Investigative author Andrew Cook sheds light on evidence that challenges the classic view of the Great Train Robbery of August 8, 1963, which saw thieves raid a Royal Mail train in the wake of a summer marred by the scandals of the Profumo Affair and Kim Philby's defection to the Soviet Union. The writer speculates that the £2.6million heist must have been an inside job, gaining access to reports from the subsequent investigation that were sealed for nearly 50 years, and revealing the hidden story of the pursuit of criminal `insiders' thought to be responsible for leaking sensitive information to the robbers.
