Bizarre documentary

    Anybody remember a documentary (c4/5 a long time ago, I think) about a petty thief in about the 16th-18th century,(could be wrong).
    Who was really good at escaping jails but was always caught because he was always found in his local tavern everytime.

    He was finally hanged, saved by the crowd & died because of people crowding round him.

    Want to know his name and find the documentary, or a book about him.

    Somebody must know that old documentary, I hope


    thomas archer maybe? cant remember

    Not the right guy, but found him while searching for the name you mentioned.
    It's Jack Sheppard (1702–1724).
    Thanks cold toast.
