Riveting

Michael Caine brilliantly tells the story of various heists. From the first episode, the story comes to life and we are introduced to the employees who find the evidence of robbery, the police and investigators, and also the perpetrators. This is riveting stuff, well read, written and produced.

Highly recommended.

Badly Written

Could have been great. Unfortunately really badly written. There could have been a better selection of heists covered.

Fascinating

So very interesting to hear about some of the most famous heists in the world, especially as told by the robbers themselves. How they were executed and why they were caught....but not always with the money !! Micheal Cain was the perfect narrator 😊

Brilliant

All six of these episodes are fantastic. They cover a broad range of historical heists, ranging from almost perfect, to absolutely terrible - all of which are incredibly entertaining.
