The Gold Trailer Teases BBC One’s Crime Drama Series

BBC One has dropped the official The gold trailer for the upcoming crime film. The series is inspired by the real-life Brink’s-Mat robbery, which is Britain’s biggest gold heist to date. It currently has no exact release date, but is expected to debut sometime this year.

The video highlights the events following the theft as the police scramble to quickly find the stolen gold before it becomes completely untraceable. It also gives us our first look at its acclaimed cast, including Hugh Bonneville and Dominic Cooper.

Check out the official one The gold trailer below:

The gold is directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Aneil Karia and Lawrence Gough from a script written by Neil Forsyth. The series is inspired by the iconic true story of the Brink’s-Mat robbery and the decades-long chain of events that followed.

It stars Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey), Jack Lowden (Slow horses), Dominic Cooper (The preacher), Charlotte Spencer (The Duke), Tom Cullen (Black mirror), Emun Elliott (Blame, Old), Sean Harris (Impossible mission), Ellora Torchia (Midsummer), and Stefanie Martini (The Last Kingdom).

“On November 26, 1983, six gunmen broke into the Brink’s-Mat security deposit near London’s Heathrow Airport and inadvertently stumbled upon £26 million worth of gold bullion,” the synopsis reads. “What started as ‘a typical Old Kent Road armed robbery’ according to detectives at the time, became a seminal event in British criminal history, remarkable not only for the scale of the theft, at the time the largest in world history, but for its wider legacy .

Inspired by extensive research and interviews with some of those involved in the events, The gold is a vibrant dramatization that takes a journey into a 1980s world awash with cheap money and loose morals to tell this extraordinary and epic story for the first time in its entirety.”

The series is executive produced by Forsyth and Ben Farrell for Tannadice Pictures, Tommy Bulfin for the BBC and Kate Laffey and Claire Sowerby-Sheppard for VIS, with Charlie Leech serving as producer.

The gold will premiere in the UK on BBC One and BBC iPlayer, followed by its US debut on Paramount+.
