Yes, we actually stayed up until 1:15 to watch it (normally asleep by then). I thought it was really well acted, particularly Simon Cotton (Ronnie). Yes it was violent but I suppose that's what you would expect.

It was on Channel 5 Lion Queen.

Is there a second part to it Longdogs do you know? Because you didn't see all of what happened, or when they were put in Prison for the last time.

That's a good question. I also thought a lot was left out, not least Jack 'The hat' McVitie and George Cornell, so I looked it up and there is indeed a sequel called 'The fall of the Krays'.

Not sure if it's on TV at any time soon though.

No I didn't watch it.
I think some of these programmes give publicity to and 'glorify' criminal and thugs and add to their air of mystique particularly with regard to a certain set of people with psychopathic tendencies.
