S01E01 Episode 1 16/01/2012 Britain is the shoplifting capital of Europe - the crime has increased by over 12% in the last year. This film heads to the front line of the battle between shops and robbers, revealing the cunning and clever up-to-date tactics employed by both sides. The summer riots highlighted that Brits are prepared to break the law and steal to get what they want. Whilet store detectives are refusing to give up the fight, shoplifters are equally determined to outwit them. It's a surreal world of cat and mouse - detectives scour Facebook while lifters use a range of complex tricks to try to disable those seemingly unmovable tags. The recession is dramatically changing the goods that are being stolen - the theft of clothing is being replaced by a huge rise in meat stealing. With shoplifters becoming smarter and more presentable in appearance, security staff have to become experts in body language to stay one step ahead. These committed detectives are putting their necks on the line, often without handcuffs or stab vests, while they try and detain people who, when caught, can sometimes turn violent.
S01E02 Episode 2 00/00/0000 With extraordinary access to police, store detectives and lifters, this follow up documentary gives viewers an even closer ringside seat to the cat and mouse game between persistent shoplifters and those determined to catch them. This time the cameras move to York, a town which faces the twin threat of local lifters and the inter-city professional gangs who prey on the vulnerabilities of small-town Britain. With the recession the profile of shoplifters is changing, as a female pensioner and a wheelchair user are amongst the bewildering array of characters caught stealing. The film learns about the latest tricks of the shoplifting trade: from 'bollocksing' (hiding stolen goods inside your underwear) to stuffing items into a fake cushion. And Steve and Dan, the self-proclaimed Batman and Robin of Brighton seen in the first Secrets of the Shoplifters film, are brought in by a local store to help them defeat the lifters who are stealing around £1000 worth of goods per week.

S02E02 Episode 2 08/08/2012 As the Olympics draws millions to London gangs of pickpockets are on the rise across the capital. This film tells the story of the unseen war on a crime that has 1700 victims a day. Organised crews of pickpockets have descended on London in search of easy pickings. This film tells the story of the unseen war on the 'dippers' and the specialist teams created to take them on. Up 17% in the last two years, pickpocketing is a crime that is rarely witnessed by the public. This film follows the game of cat and mouse played out between the cops and robbers beneath the gaze of tourists and regular Londoners, catching the action as it unfolds and some of the astonishing tricks of the pickpocket trade, from the 'block and shield' to the 'two-fingered lift'.
