The Great British Train Robbery a Tale of Two ThievesWe’re not content with only running one competition this fortnight, so we’re offering up another. This time, rather than any high kicking, ninja killing action like our last couple of prizes, we’ve come down to Earth with a documentary that should prove equally as thrilling in its own way.

Our friends at ar:pr and Signature Entertainment have offered us 2 DVD copies of The Great British Train Robbery: A Tale of Two Thieves to give away. It’s a documentary which claims to finally uncover all the facts behind the infamous heist back in the ’60’s.

Details on how to enter are at the bottom of this page, but in the meantime, here’s some information about the film to let you know more about what you could win:

August 1963. Sears Crossing, Buckinghamshire. Fifteen men pull off “The Great Train Robbery,” netting today’s equivalent of £45 million.


We’ve read the books, seen the TV specials. We’ve heard Ronnie Biggs and Bruce Reynolds reel off their usual spiel. We think we know the full story by now. But the truth is, we’ve never heard the actual INSIDE STORY. Because no one’s ever learned the identity of the missing mastermind – the elusive and mysterious “Ulsterman.”


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 honourable and every day held the potential for a new caper.

Over 50 years after the heist, one of the robbers, Gordon Goody, has finally agreed to go fully on record and reveal all the unknown facts about that fateful night and his life of crime, including the identity of the “mythical” Ulsterman.

The film will not only reveal the identity of the Ulsterman, but exactly how he came by his information, how he eluded the police and how he personally got away with the equivalent of over TWO MILLION POUNDS.

And finally, we will also show what he did with the money… an unsolved mystery that has enthralled the world for over fifty years.

A TALE OF TWO THIEVES is released in cinemas today and will be available on DVD, Blu-Ray and download on 6th October
