    The Secret History: The Great Train Robbery, referenced above as http://ftvdb.bfi.org.uk/sift/title/634644 is available on YouTube at http://tinyurl.com/plfmlg4.
    I was a member of the crew on this show and it allows me to tell people that I was taught to make caipirinhas (the cocktail) by Ronnie Biggs in Rio de Janeiro 😳
