The Gold 2023 start date confirmed for new series

The Gold is the brand new drama coming to BBC One in 2023 with a start date now confirmed!

The crime drama tells the story of the infamous 1980s Brink’s-Mat robbery which saw £26 million worth of gold bullion stolen from a security depot near London’s Heathrow Airport.

A teaser shares: “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.

“Inspired by extensive research and interviews with some of those involved in the events, The Gold is a pulsating dramatization which takes a journey into a 1980s world awash with cheap money and loosened morals to tell this extraordinary and epic story for the first time in its entirety.”

The Gold start date

The Gold will begin on BBC One on Sunday, 12 February at 9PM.

You’ll also be able to watch online on BBC iPlayer with all episodes available to stream after the first airs on TV.
