    A few years ago there was a British series in which a group of real criminals were given a challenge - to steal a specific item. One week it would be a prototype car, the next a painting etc. The companies that owned these items were aware of the challenge, and increased their security accordingly. However, in every episode I saw, the crims were successful. It only ran for one series, IIRC.

    Does anyone recall the name of this series please, and whether it is available anywhere?

    Thanks.

    Sounds a bit like Impossible Heists but I don't believe they were real criminals.

    Thanks for your post, Silver Tyne, but that isn't it. These guys were the real deal, with the prison records to prove it.

    I always suspected the reason it didn't make it to a second series was because of their overwhelming success rate.
