When is Derren Brown's The Great Art Robbery on Channel 4? (and predictions)

The Great Art Robbery will air next Friday, December 13, 2013, at 9 pm on channel 4.

Any guesses about how DB will train a group of pensioners to steal a work of art (from an art collector who has been warned of the impending theft)? The concept sounds like Derren's past special, The Heist. Based on advance publicity, though, this time I suspect the crime will rely on the fact that people overlook the elderly.

My best guess is that DB's thieves will steal the painting in broad daylight, surrounded by other museum goers. They will go unnoticed because they are elderly, thereby making Derren's point about how we should pay more attention to the older members of society.
