top thriller based on true facts
17 October 2013 | by schyns-595-509840See all my reviews

The first time I saw it on TV was on German TV in 1966, and after having seen it several times, I was lucky to buy the series of 3 episodes on DVD.

The documentary style in which it is presented makes clear that this great trainrobbery really has happened and one can hardly believe that there is any fiction in it. The actual facts were frontpage news; not only in the UK, but in many countries.

The acting crew - with some of the finest German actors - did a fabulous job.

It still keeps on fascinating me; the 3 episodes ... I mostly want to see them all in one evening. Probably every year I'll watch it over and over again.
