"The Great Bookie Robbery" is a compelling essay in crime, violence and robbery. Its the true story of Australians most daring heist. On 21 April 1976, gunmen held up more than 50 members of Melbourne's venerable Victorian club, escaping with several million dollars in untraceable cash. The robbery had been so brilliantly planned and executed that police were left without a single clue and so strict was the robbers code of silence that not even the underworld was aware of their identities. The heist was so daring, so clean, that it earned the admiration of law-abiding Australians...and compliments from the victims themselves. Starring John Bach and Ray Meagher its a story of cunning, loyalty, fear, brutality and death!
