Description by OLDIES.com:
From the narrow streets of Nice to the gleaming corridors of Wall Street, "Daring Capers" tracks some of the world's most fascinating criminals and their audacious crimes. Here's a rogue's gallery of bank robbers, art thieves, and debonair con artists who tried to steal their way to wealth through brilliant ploys and slick transactions. Their methods may amuse, their exploits may amaze, but their determination to make an easy buck is no laughing matter.
With dramatizations, news footage and interviews with witnesses and law enforcement officials, Daring Capers takes you down the moral low road into the enticingly dangerous, devilish world of the criminal in 20 edge-of-your-seat episodes on 4 DVDs, originally aired on TLC, The Learning Channel.
These are the stories of some of the most outlandish and unlawful get-rich-quick schemes ever exposed. Some were even successful.
The high-rise burglar, the daring jewel thief, the tunneling bank robbers, the Italian playboy who is more than he appears and the "Queen of Jewels" whose exploits baffled her pursuers; these are just a few of the rogues you'll meet in this amazing, amusing and entertaining collection of world-class criminals.
