A journey deep into the Melbourne Underworld. Based on the notorious true-life crime! On 21st April 1976, gunmen held up more than 50 members of Melbourne's venerable Victorian club, escaping with several million dollars in untraceable cash.

The Great Bookie Robbery is a compelling essay in crime, violence and robbery. It is also the toughest of crime dramas, boasting a drive, grittiness and ferocity seldom seen on Australian screens
