The Millennium Dome Heist With Ross Kemp
It was a scenario straight out of a Guy Ritchie film, taking place in that fittingly hubristic monument to late-90s excess, the Millennium Dome. Two decades on, this documentary reveals the true audacity of the attempted diamond heist that would have netted a bigger haul than Brink’s-Mat, Hatton Garden and the Great Train Robbery put together. Seven criminals, armed only with a bulldozer and a speedboat, planned the robbery – but the Old Bill had a few cunning ruses of their own. Phil Harrison
