Blood Money: The Curse of the Brink's Mat Robbery

History1 x 90' for Channel 5

Nearly 40 years on from Britain’s biggest gold robbery, police officers and key witnesses, many speaking exclusively, for the first time, reveal the inside story behind the heist

In November 1983, a gang of armed robbers stormed into the Brink’s-Mat security depot near Heathrow, threatened the guards inside and doused them with petrol. They eventually got away with 26 million pounds worth of gold.
