An Alltime Classic of German TV (minus the annoying score)
22 July 2010 | by (Munich, Germany) – See all my reviews

You have to scan German regional public TV stations carefully to capture one of the occasional replays of this wonderful TV event about the greatest British train robbery that ever was. Again a very German view on British events (we can not only beat them to pieces in the soccer ground !)from Germany with a very German British style (trenchcoats, pubs, inserts from Piccadilly square and greyhound race tracks, even correct left side driving) with the most German actors you can think or and a not so unnerving voice over commenting. Why only a 7: Because the score is basically unnerving "dong dong dong dong do dong dong dong....". Bert Kaempfert could have given them something much better, had they only asked. But if you can get it, don't miss it.
