The new drama tells the aftermath of the Brink’s-Mat robbery in the 1980s which saw more than £25 million worth of gold stolen from a depot at Heathrow Airport.

A teaser shares: “The disposal of the bullion led to a vast international money laundering operation, 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.

The Gold: TONY BRIGHTWELL (EMUN ELLIOTT), HARRY BOWMAN (SILAS CARSON), MAX GOODMAN (PAUL THORNLEY), BRIAN BOYCE (HUGH BONNEVILLE), JOHN FORDHAM (HADLEY FRASER), NICKI JENNINGS (CHARLOTTE SPENCER), NEIL MURPHY (CHRIS COGHILL).

“Inspired by extensive research and interviews with some of those involved in the events, The Gold is a pulsating dramatisation 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.”
