About the show

A new three-part crime documentary series for RTÉ One, Heist goes behind the headlines of some of the most notorious large-scale crimes ever committed in Ireland.

Programme one features the Real IRA's attempted robbery of a Securicor vehicle in Co Wicklow, while programme two looks at the infamous Brinks Allied Heist.

The last programme in the series focuses on Russborough House, the Irish estate of the late Sir Alfred Beit, from which priceless works have been sensationally robbed on four separate occasions since 1974.
