What to Expect Binging The Gold

The Gold looks to be as entertaining as it is culturally significant. On the 26 November 1983, six armed men broke into the Brink’s-Mat security depot near London’s Heathrow Airport, and inadvertently stumbled upon and stole £26m worth of gold. The series will this intense and gripping story in previous unknown detail.

The disposal of the bullion caused the birth of large-scale international money laundering, provided the dirty money that helped fuel the London Docklands property boom, united blue and white collar criminals and left controversy and murder in its wake.

What made the robbery so remarkable was not the scale of the theft, which at the time was the biggest in world history, but for its wider legacy. Though it must be said that The Gold is so much more than the story of an armed robbery. The team behind the production was inspired by the extensive research and interviews which had been made with those involved in the events.

The team have curated an amazing cast to tell the story faithfully. On the cast roll include Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey), Jack Lowden (Small Axe), Dominic Cooper and (Sense and Sensibility) Charlotte Spencer (Sanditon). With these fantastic British talent on-screen, the result will be one of the most intense small screen experience of the year.
