There have been many different productions of the events which took place during The Great Train Robbery back in 1962. Now, BBC are bringing us the new television show The Great Train Robbery, which sees actor Jim Broadbent playing the role of detective, and Jim has opened up about his memories of the great heist.

Broadbent explained, "I think I was 13 at the time and in fact I’d seen Roy James, the getaway driver, racing in a racing car – so I had sort of identified with him and the whole train robbery at a young age."
 
He added, "It was a story I had followed more or less for its duration, and years later I actually saw Roy James and Charlie Wilson, two of the robbers, back in court when I was researching to play a barrister in a film directed by Stephen Frears called The Hit. They were back in court to do with some VAT bullion fraud and when I went into the Old Bailey there was no one else in the viewing gallery apart from me – and then I looked down and saw six of them in 
the dock including those two chaps.”
