Britain wakes up to news of the biggest robbery in the country’s history - a train has been hijacked and robbed. The country is stunned: who could be behind it? How did they pull off such an audacious raid? A Robber’s Tale is told from the perspective of the perpetrators, a group of mid-level criminals who, together with a corrupt solicitor, pulled off a major theft that baffled and frustrated the police. Told with a sense of fun, swagger and cinematic scale, it's a classic heist movie filled with memorable set-pieces, wit, suspense, action, daring, comedy and a joyous sense of period. A Copper’s Tale focuses on the police investigation - conducted in the full glare of public and media scrutiny - told from the perspective of the elite team of detectives intent on catching the Great Train Robbers. In a race against time, can the team identify every criminal involved - and put them behind bars - before they flee the country? And even if they manage to catch the criminals - what’s happened to the money itself?
