Luke Goss teams up with Steven Berkoff to tell the real life story of 'Charlie Richardson', the head of the notorious 'torture gang'.
In the sixties, London was owned and ruled by two families, North of the river the Krays, to the South the Richardsons.
Now for the first time in his own words 'Charlie' reveals what really happened.
London July 30, 1966, England win the World Cup, a fabled day in English history. But also on that day Charlie Richardsons' life was about to change forever. He was arrested and tried in what became known as the 'torture trial' a trial of gravest importance to British society.
The case was so significant that even today the files remain sealed. 104 jurors were finally whittled down to 12 all of whom were given a personal body guard.
At a time when The Beatles ruled the world and young Americans were fighting in Vietnam, for ten weeks the British public were glued to the events at the Old Bailey, where Charlie Richardson was sentenced to 25 years in prison.
