Fine police drama.

"The Gold Robbers" is a very loose television adaptation of the real life 1963 train robbery. In this mini series, the train is substituted for a plane. Peter Vaughan - excellent as villains - is successfully cast against type as the determined Senior Police officer who leads the investigation into the robbery of millions of pounds worth of Gold bullion. There is a great supporting cast, Ian Hendry, George Cole amongst others. The pace rarely lets up and the 13 episodes whiz by.
