To Catch A Thief - Format

60 min eps

How secure is your home?

Revealing fascinating insights into the workings of the criminal mind, this eye opening format sees two ex-criminals coming together for one more job – but this time they are on the right side of the law.

In shocking television, the expert thieves commit a real burglary on the homes of unsuspecting victims in a mission to highlight security weaknesses, sending a chilling wakeup call to the home owners as they later watch the break in on CCTV.

The ex-cons then help the owners with a ‘crime make-over’ – a security audit of their homes to burglar-proof them from future break ins.

Weeks after the experiment, a final unannounced surprise break-in attempt from the two ex-cons test whether the security upgrade has done the trick, but have the home owners remembered to lock up?
