“Finally, the story can be told,” promises the trailer for ITV’s Hatton Garden – a four-part drama about a group of elderly men who pulled off an audacious raid on an underground vault, carrying off millions of pounds of jewellery and cash.
The drama was initially scheduled to air in December 2017, but after two postponements it is finally set to air.
Hatton Garden airs nightly in four parts from Monday 20th May till Thursday 23rd May at 9pm on ITV.

What is Hatton Garden about?
The drama is based on the true story of the April 2015 cash and jewellery heist in London’s diamond district, Hatton Garden. The burglary was carried out by a group of veteran thieves. Over the Easter weekend, they broke into the safe deposit facility and drilled into the vault, making off with £14 million of valuables in an audacious nighttime raid.
Hatton Garden tells the story of how the heist was executed, taking us through the burglary from beginning to end and exploring the relationships between these men. We’ll also see the complex police operation that led to the gang’s capture.
Co-written by Terry Winsor and Jeff Pope (who also executive produces), and directed by Paul Whittington, Hatton Garden will also turn the spotlight on the victims of the crime: the small business owners who suffered the loss of their livelihoods when their safety deposit boxes were raided by these men.
Although this is a fictionalised drama rather than a documentary, Hatton Garden is closely based on the real events of the heist.
