Over four, one-hour long episodes, Hatton Garden tells the story of how the men pulled off the heist which was considered in a class of its own in terms of scale and ambition, and the extraordinary level of planning, preparation and organisation required to penetrate the vault of the Hatton Garden Safety Deposit Company.
Co-written with Terry Winsor (Hot Money, Danielle Cable: Eyewitness, Essex Boys), and directed by Paul Whittington (Little Boy Blue, The Moorside, Cilla, Mrs Biggs), Hatton Garden shows how the gang meticulously planned the raid, the tensions amongst the group, the loss of livelihoods suffered by the box holders and the complex police operation that captured the gang.
The first episode (May 20) sees the gang make an attempt their raid but things don’t go to plan.
In the second episode (May 21) after an eventful, stressful and agonisingly unsuccessful nights’ work, the Hatton Garden gang are all back at home, replaying their individual mistakes and failures from the night before.
In Episode 3 (May 22), two days have passed since the gang escaped from the Hatton Garden Safety Deposit Vault with millions in stolen goods, and everyone is just arriving back to work on the Tuesday morning after the long Easter weekend, when the burglary is discovered by a security guard walking into the vault to see the havoc left behind.
The final episode (May 23) sees the net close in on the group. The gang are slowly destroying themselves from the inside, and their conversations and meetings are being bugged by the police.
