I remember the 'Great Train Robbery" as if it happened yesterday. The British public were, at first, a little indignant that these 'thugs' would steal from 'Her Majesty's Royal Mail'. However when it was discovered that they made a decision not to take guns as they did not want to seriously hurt anyone public opinion changed. People started to 'root' for these 'naughty lads'.
When the Police brought in Tommy Butler, MBE to take over the investigation the Robbers knew that their time 'on the lamb' was limited as Tommy's nickname was 'One Day Tommy" as he was known to close to close cases in less than 24 hours!
Robert Ryan has done plenty of research and unlike many books and articles on this subject he has kept to the facts. Ralph Lister's performance keeps it fresh and interesting.
A good read/ listen.
