Plot Synopsis

Inspired by the real-life events that took place on November 26, 1983, THE GOLD is a six-episode scripted series that follows six armed men who broke into the Brink's-Mat security depot near London's Heathrow Airport on November 25, 1983 and inadvertently stumbled across gold bullion worth 26 million pounds. What started as 'a typical Old Kent Road armed robbery' according to detectives at the time, became a seminal event in British criminal history, remarkable not only for the scale of the theft, at the time the biggest in world history, but for its wider legacy. The disposal of the bullion caused the birth of large-scale international money laundering, provided the dirty money that helped fuel the London Docklands property boom, united blue- and white-collar criminals and left controversy and murder in its wake. THE GOLD made its U.S. debut on Sunday, September 17, 2023 on Paramount+, which released the first two episodes. A new installment dropped weekly through October 15.
On Sunday, October 15, 2023, Paramount+ released "I'll Be Remembered," the season finale of THE GOLD. Palmer is finally caught after attempting to escape to Brazil. The police learn that Cooper and Parry have been laundering the Brink's-Mat millions. Cooper is arrested but Parry escapes.
