Brand new shows on the HISTORY® Channel Africa this May

Greatest Heists With Pierce Brosnan on the HISTORY Channel Africa (DStv 186) will bring to life some of the most devious and high-stakes heist attempts of all time, every Saturday evening starting May 20, 2023.

Throughout history, people have done anything and everything in their power to get their hands on lots of money, including formulating some of the most scheming heist attempts. Greatest Heists with Pierce Brosnan (Saturdays at 20h15) delves into these intricate schemes and the audacity of the criminal masterminds who risked their freedom for a shot at a lifetime of wealth and riches.

Greatest Heists is hosted by the legendary Pierce Brosnan, who is best known for playing James Bond in the Bond movie series. In this latest HISTORY Channel series, the multi-award-winning actor is embedded into each heist through state-of-the-art technology.

Greatest Heists with Pierce Brosnan breaks down every aspect of the plan including the conniving team, the mark, the execution and finally the aftermath. The series also features leading criminologists, journalists, criminals, police, and historians to create an in-depth investigation into each real-life heist.

The eight-part docu-series investigates amongst others; the Baker Street Bank burglary which saw enterprising thieves tunnel underneath and up into the vault of a London bank and the notorious airline heist known as the Lufthansa Heist of New York. The Antwerp Belgium Diamond Heist, which saw thieves make off with more than $100 million in diamonds, gems, and cash after more than two years of planning, is also uncovered.

So, diarise HISTORY Channel Africa (DStv 186) every Saturday evening starting May 20, 2023!
