As they plan their latest con, the gang are targeted by corrupt cop DI Fisk.

Drama series about a group of con artists. The gang plan an inheritance scam to bring down their latest mark, but are unaware that they're being targeted by corrupt cop DI Fisk.

The gang are on a high after finishing a successful con on a night club owner but their celebration seems premature when, a short while later, corrupt policeman DI Fisk meets with one of his underworld contacts who has a task for him - get Mickey Stone.

Unaware that they're now being targeted by Fisk, Mickey and the gang move on to their next mark - Linda Runcorn, the corrupt owner of an online travel guide. When Mickey learns that Linda's rich grandmother had been disinherited, leaving Linda with only a prized bracelet, they decide upon an inheritance scam. They'll pretend to be an heir hunting firm and approach Linda with the news that she's about to receive a huge inheritance. To convince her they'll show a matching bracelet, supposedly found amongst her dead relative's things.

Meanwhile Fisk arrests Sean's former girlfriend and pickpocket, Kat, on false charges and insists she infiltrate the group to spy on the con. Single mother Kat has no choice but to agree and, playing down on her luck, she entices Sean to let her help, reporting back to Fisk on their plans. Sean convinces Mickey to let Kat assist Emma with the switch, unaware that Fisk has demanded Kat plant drugs in Emma's case. As the meeting ends Emma is arrested and Sean is devastated.

Fisk's next step is to offer Mickey a deal - Emma's freedom in exchange for payment. But Mickey suspects correctly that Fisk is trying to arrest him for bribing a police officer and refuses. Frustrated by Mickey's refusal, Fisk offers a distraught Sean a deal - give up Mickey and Emma will go free. Is Sean about to betray Mickey and send him to jail? This may be one police trap that Mickey can't escape...

Latest broadcast:

John Hurt as Artist, and the role of the Fool in King Lear.

Sir John Hurt's widow Anwen on the late actor's paintings and drawings; the role of the Fool in King Lear; and recommendations for summer reading for those holidaying in the UK.

John Hurt as Artist is a new exhibition in Norfolk which reveals a less well-known side of the actor who died last year. Sir John Hurt's widow Anwen discusses the mainly figurative paintings and drawings which mostly relate to the actor's off-screen life, but also include self-portraits of him in prosthetic make-up for his role as John Merrick in The Elephant Man from 1980.

Ian McKellen is playing King Lear in the West End and recently Anthony Hopkins played him on television. Accompanying Lear on his bleak and tragic journey is his Fool. Karl Johnson, Fool to Anthony Hopkins' Lear, and Lloyd Hutchinson, McKellen's Fool, discuss the way they approach this enigmatic figure.

Recently we've been offering inspiration on holiday reading to help you choose which books to cram into your suitcase. Today New Statesman book critic Sarah Ditum concludes the series with a set of recommendations for people holidaying closer to home, in the UK and Ireland.

Directed by Sally Avens

Al Smith's tense drama goes behind the scenes of an ambulance control room where we hear from Carrie about the job and hear how she deals with the vast disparity of calls that come in - some are literally a matter of life or death and in some of the others well the emergency may be more in the mind of the caller.

Al has written extensively for radio including Life In The Freezer and Everyday Time Machines. He is a graduate of the BBC Writers Academy, has been a broadcast Hot Shot and in 2012 won the BFI Wellcome Trust Screenwriting Prize.
