Britain's Underworld delves deep into the dark criminal underbelly of the UK in this brand new 3-part series. Despite the best efforts of politicians, judges and the police, the war on crime is still raging. With every generation throwing up a new batch of gangsters, drug smugglers and ruthless thugs, we meet the men determined to make crime pay and the police force dedicated to stop them. Costa Del Crime - Due to an extradition loophole left open until the mid-80s, the coasts of Spain were a hotbed of British criminal talent.

With crooks finding they could work on their tans while simultaneously staying beyond the reach of the law, including the gang behind the £6 million Security Express raid of 1983, publicity-courting gangster Ronnie Knight and the so-called "Managing Director of British Crime", Freddie Foreman.

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.
