122: A Tale of Two Thieves

August 1963. Sears Crossing, Buckinghamshire, England. Fifteen men pull off "The Great Train Robbery," netting today's equivalent of almost $70 million. It’s one of the most famous crimes in the history of Great Britain. Movies have been made, books have been written, LOOSE LIPPED CRIMINALS INVOLVED PULLED A PATRICK—GOT HAMMERED AND BRAGGED TO ANYONE WHO WOULD LISTEN! But the true inside story has never been told until now.  In “A Tale of Two Thieves”, we are transported back to a bygone era when criminals lived by a code, a time when the life of a thief was ALMOST honorable and every day held the potential for a new caper.
