Sir Michael Caine - perhaps best known as gang leader Charlie Croker in 60s crime caper The Italian Job - tells the stories of remarkable heists and extraordinary robberies from around the world, as remembered by the masterminds, detectives, victims, journalists and witnesses that lived through them.

For more than 60 years, Caine has played thieves, criminals, gangsters and the detectives trying to catch them. But there’s Hollywood and then there’s real life... and that’s when things get really interesting.

From the largest bank burglary in American history, to the world’s most audacious book heist, Heist with Michael Caine travels to America, Australia, Stockholm, Antwerp and everywhere in-between to tell true stories behind the world’s most daring heists.

Fantastic, wraps you up and carries you along

A great listen. Atmospheric, funny and exciting. I can’t wait to listen to them all. Although maybe they would have a better time figuring out “who done it” if whenever they refer to a unknown member of the gang they didn’t call them a he...although great for the female criminal fraternity to be unexamined!

Very interesting

Always love Michael Caine, he narrates these interesting podcasts of various heists that have gone on around the world speaking to the people involved. A first hand, upfront workings of the heist to get your money. Exciting listening.

Riveting

Michael Caine brilliantly tells the story of various heists. From the first episode, the story comes to life and we are introduced to the employees who find the evidence of robbery, the police and investigators, and also the perpetrators. This is riveting stuff, well read, written and produced.

Highly recommended.

Badly Written

Could have been great. Unfortunately really badly written. There could have been a better selection of heists covered.

Fascinating

So very interesting to hear about some of the most famous heists in the world, especially as told by the robbers themselves. How they were executed and why they were caught....but not always with the money !! Micheal Cain was the perfect narrator 😊

Brilliant

All six of these episodes are fantastic. They cover a broad range of historical heists, ranging from almost perfect, to absolutely terrible - all of which are incredibly entertaining.
