The Gold debuted on the BBC last year and was met with wonderful accolades. And rightly so. The miniseries was inspired by the strange real-life events that unfolded on November 26, 1983, when six armed men broke into the Brink’s-Mat security depot near London’s Heathrow Airport and planned to steal £1m. They inadvertently stumbled across £26m gold bullion instead.
Engaging but complicated, it’s the stellar cast that truly elevates The Gold, which tracks the fallout of the infamous 1983 British gold heist.
