The full and thrilling story of the robbery that went wrong.
It was a plot worthy of a James Bond movie and would have been the heist of the Millennium had it not been for the Met Police’s Flying Squad’s operation to foil the plan of some of Britain’s best and most wanted criminals. In 2000, a gang of villains from the South East of England hatched an audacious plan to steal the world’s largest perfect diamond from the Millennium Dome and make their getaway by speedboat up the River Thames. If they’d succeeded, it would have made the spoils of the Great Train Robbery and Brinks Mat look like loose change. The gang nearly had it all. They came within a whisker of unimaginable wealth, but it was snatched from under them by one of the most daring police operations ever. Presented by Mark Austin, Millenium Heist: Diamond Geezers tells the full and thrilling story of the robbery that went wrong and the police operation of the century. From the crime’s conception and execution to the notorious trial and appeal, it’s a gripping account of a remarkable… real crime.

    These guys were the dumbest gang of robbers and the unluckiest, some great plan,s and idea,s, but in the three botched robbery's this lot pulled they didn't get a penny, that totally random driver that took the truck key, that shit made me laugh, the second attempt, cops randomly appear no cash again then just when it look's like they have cracked it inches from the diamond which they believed was worth £350 million, but was worth less than the hammer used to break the glass. They spent thousands on truck,s, and boat's and a jcb, Who ever they were working for wasn,t getting his money back even if they got that chunk of glass, Don't know about James Bond more Johnny English, And they say crime don't pay.

Feels like its all about the uppers trying to look good and feel like they are in Hollywood. The dome management had it right when they were against it and didn't want to people tourists at risk.

      @We say no to pay to win They literally explained why... they had to catch them redhanded or there would be no case. Now in order to do that u have to use manpower to spy/investigate/arrest them etc. and that takes months. U suggest u let them escape and risk losing them instead of arresting them right after they got enough evidence to put them behind bars? Odd take, not gonna lie.
