Despite Ronnie Biggs’ offer to ITV to check the facts of its new drama series Mrs Biggs, a programme that features Ron as a major character, the broadcaster declined, apparently confident that it would know the correct details of Ron’s life better than the man himself.
But not even Ron could have imagined that in the first episode of Mrs Biggs they would manage to get the date and time of the Great Train Robbery wrong.
Quite a few fans of Ron and the Great Train Robbery spotted the error. All a question of attention to detail and knowing the facts.
For the moment we are going to see if the producers can work out how they got it wrong, or perhaps being a drama the facts are surplus to requirements.
