Ronnie, Reggie and Me – Fred Dineage
Ronnie Reggie and Me
Discover the definitive insight into the real life of Britain’s most notorious gangsters, from their trusted official biographer, Fred Dinenage.
For decades they were feared as the ultimate criminal gang lords of the London underworld, but their reign of terror came crashing to an end when in 1969 both Ronnie and Reggie Kray, who of course had strong links to the Isle of Wight, were given life sentences by a judge at the Old Bailey. Reggie went on to serve decades in some of the toughest prisons in the country, while Ronnie became a patient at Broadmoor with an insanity that was only kept under control by massive doses of drugs.
TV legend Fred Dinenage was chosen by the twins to tell their official story, and he became one of the very few people allowed into their inner circle. Fred gained an unparalleled insight into the real lives of the legendary kings of crime, and in this show he reveals stories and situations for the first time that have never been told publicly before.
Join Fred in person as he discloses what it was like to venture into some of Britain’s toughest institutions and meet the most foreboding twins in criminal history, who other journalists just couldn’t get close to. You’ll hear stories that will fascinate and intrigue, while learning about the gritty reality of being a gangster in the criminal underworld of the swinging 60s, from the only man they trusted to tell their tale.
