It’s the swinging sixties and London is home of fashion, pop music, and celebrity scandal. But beneath the glitz and glamour is a dark underbelly of gangland crime.
Emerging from the ashes of a war-torn city; two brothers would forge a criminal empire from the snooker halls and pubs of the East End, to the jazz bars and clubs of the fashionable West End - these two young men would come to rule it all.
This is the rise of Ronnie and Reggie Kray.
A Noiser production, written by Robert Parker. With thanks to Kate Beal Blyth, writer, documentary film-maker, and the author of ‘The Krays: Prison Years’.
This is Part 1 of 3.
