A Robber’s Tale
Based on the true story of the 1963 train robbery, this film shows how a group of mid-level criminals masterminded by Bruce Reynolds joined forces with a corrupt solicitor to hijack the Bank Holiday mail train from Glasgow to Euston. But their meticulous planning was compromised by a violent attack on the train driver and a botched getaway.
Faced with such a huge and audacious crime, worth £44 million in today’s money, the establishment hit back – and Reynolds and his men became the most wanted men in Britain.
