The Heist

In the season premiere, David and Emilia talk to the UK's most prolific bank robber, Noel 'Razor' Smith, a man who wouldn't hesitate to "put one in your foot" if you made a move. In this rare and exclusive interview, you get to hear what's it like to be in the getaway car driving to a job, the planning that goes into a bank robbery, and the grizzly reality of what you have to be prepared to do, to get the money without getting caught. And in their second interview, David and Emilia hear from Sarah Hey, director of The Great Train Robbery: The Hidden Tapes, who explains how the program has revealed new information and brought us closer to the truth of what really happened in the theft of £2.6million, over fifty years ago.
