Inside Men

Although the planning for the heist is starting to come together, the men’s lives aren’t getting any easier.

Kalpesh is happy to help but he wants one of his men, Riaz, to be allowed to look around the counting house.

Chris finds his mum increasingly difficult to handle as her drinking gets worse and she suffers bouts of confusion and paranoia. Gina is frustrated that Marcus is getting sidelined and tells him to demand more responsibility.

John gives Marcus the task of buying the masks for the heist, so Gina and Marcus go on a little trip to buy them.

Ep 3/4

9:00pm Thursday 9 February on BBC ONE

John, Chris and Marcus have made a decision that will change the rest of their lives and set about making their big idea a reality.

The three men do their best to discuss their plan without arousing suspicion. Their first big challenge is to employ the muscle to carry off the heist. Marcus has a connection: a businessman called Kalpesh who can help them with the guns and the men they need, but he wants to see cash to prove they are serious.

John has been put forward for a promotion at work. He gets a pep-talk from his boss on how to assert himself more, but instead of getting the job he uses the advice to help him take control of the group. When Marcus looks like making a mess of the deal with Kalpesh, John has to step in and close the deal.

Ep 2/4

9:00pm Thursday 2 February on BBC ONE

John Coniston is the manager of a cash counting house who finds himself in the middle of his worst nightmare: an armed robbery. His family are taken hostage and the gang force him to open the safe at gunpoint. John has been trained for this moment, but is he prepared for the real thing?

Nine months earlier and we see that John’s life is normally anything but exciting. Despite all the dreams and ambitions in his early 20s, he’s now entrenched in a humdrum normality: married, mortgaged, scraping by.

John has always played it safe. He lives in fear of confrontation. His one source of pride is his record at work. At his counting house the books are always balanced. Not even a fiver goes missing without him knowing about it.

Then one day while checking the accounts John notices that �50,000 has gone missing and he can see his world falling apart. He suspects two men of being responsible – Chris, a security guard at the depot and Marcus, a forklift driver.

John calls the two men into his office to confront them. But instead of turning them in to the police he offers them all a way out that will change them and their lives forever.
