  • [00:17.13]
  • The expensive shops in a famous arcade near Piccadilly were just opening.
  • [00:23.23]

  • [00:33.93]
  • Two of his assistants had been working busily since 8 o'clock
  • [00:38.14]
  • and had only just finished.
  • [00:40.68]
  • Diamond necklaces and rings had been beautifully arranged on a background of black velvet.
  • [00:47.00]
  • After gazing at the display for several minutes,Mr.Taylor went back into his shop.
  • [00:54.21]
  • The silence was suddenly broken when a large car,
  • [00:58.39]
  • with its headlights on and its horn blaring,roared down the arcade.
  • [01:03.84]
  • It came to a stop outside the jeweller's.
  • [01:07.28]
  • One man stayed at the wheel while two others with black stockings over their faces jumped out
  • [01:13.75]
  • and smashed the window of the shop with iron bars.
  • [01:17.96]

  • [01:33.70]

  • [01:41.94]

  • [01:50.23]
