Seven airs a great train robbery special

With MRS Briggs ending on Sunday Seven schedule a special on the infomus incident on which the series was based.

Ahead of the 50th anniversary of the 1963 Great Train Robbery, this documentary looks at the truth behind the 2.6 million pound heist and asks how two of the convicted train robbers escaped (most famously, Ronnie Biggs) and three were never even caught. Presented by historian Dominic Sandbrook, there are new interviews with Ron Biggs’ wife Charmain and the police officers who discovered their hideout, but it’s the archive footage of the gang themselves that proves most compelling.

11 PM Sunday on Seven.
