Very fine German TV documentary told around the actual train-robbery that was filmed 50 years ago as a TV series (a production of the Nord Deutscher Rundfunk)of 3 episodes called "Die Gentlemen bitten zur Kasse" about the greatest train-robbery ever (happened august, 8th 1963). The lute was about 50,000 in modern currency.
I still the old series regard perhaps as the best thriller ever: I at least saw the 3 hours on DVD's 20 times.
It again retells the same story (in 2:42 hrs) using the old TV-series from 0plus newsreels plus interviews with some of the 'gentlemen' or their wives or children. More backgrounds are explained and the true names are used. The police files had been secret for 50 years and could not be re-opened before 2013.
The comments that are added are useful for a better understanding of what has happened.
I'm happy I could record it from the German Broadcasting company.
