Synopsis:
The Mafia's Greatest Hits...and the FBI files which tell the true stories behind them.

The Maverick Mobster
Joe Colombo was flamboyant. He loved fame, celebrities and money. Rather than wait for the FBI to come to him, he decided to take them on in a truly bizarre way. Colombo was fed up with the way the FBI were harassing him. It was the 1970's, the decade of "people power" - student protests, Gay Rights marches and Martin Luther King. So he decided to set up his own organisation - the Italian-American Civil Rights League, soon he was picketing FBI offices, holding rallies and building a nationwide civil rights movement. The FBI found they couldn't lay a finger on him, but his fellow mobsters didn't like the attention he was getting. He was shot in a sensational high-profile assassination attempt at one of his rallies, all captured by the worlds media. He died eight years later and never recovered from a coma.
John Gotti
Gotti watched from his car as his assassins ruthlessly gunned down Paul Castellano, the boss of the Gambino family. Days later, Gotti was proclaimed as the Gambino boss. He soon became known as The Dapper Don' for his slick suits, outspoken personality, flamboyant life-style and courted the media and press like a movie-star. Soon the FBI were after him, but Gotti seemed uncatchable. Dramatic, highly publicised and seemingly water tight cases always seemed to end in acquittals. However 'Sammy the Bull' Gravano was persuaded to give evidence against his boss; Gotti spoke openly about numerous murders and it had all been recorded by the FBI wiretapping team which gave devastating results - life imprisonment for the Gambino family boss.
