Essex Bad Boys - After the Second World War, the new towns of Essex were heralded as a bright, new horizon - a land of open spaces and opportunity. However, the dream turned sour as crime spilled out of London's East End into the beaches, streets and nightclubs of Essex - with the effects of the exodus from the city still being felt today.
Dublin Gangland - A city that saw virtually no serious crime in the 1960s, Dublin would become a paradise for armed robbers in the 1970s. Watch as ordinary criminals mimic the paramilitary groups fighting in Northern Ireland and as drug barons move in to take over the crime scene in the 1990s. We examine the evolution of the Dublin criminal underworld from armed robberies to kidnapping and bombings.
