It’s 40 years since the Brinks Mat robbery, a core story in BLOOD AND BUTCHERY IN BEDMINSTER. BBC Sounds new podcast GANGSTER THE STORY OF JOHN PALMER features our tour. And THE GOLD, a new BBC drama, also tells the story. Our tour includes Palmer’s business premises, the bank where millions were handed over, and Palmer’s pub, converted to celebrate his success.
Extraordinary forgotten places where amazing things happened: grave robbers and body snatchers; concrete coffins and hanging judges; a man-eating lion; one of the world’s greatest impostors –and those missing millions from Britain’s biggest robbery. By the end of the tour Bedminster will never seem the same again.
