Art Crime is an industry worth billions of pounds, with around 47,000 works of art reported missing each year. Yet it’s a world glimpsed only occasionally, in fleeting news headlines when valuable works vanish or – even more rarely – when they reappear. But it is a story of our times: of desire, money, and of humanity’s undying love affair with beautiful works of art. In this fascinating documentary Alastair Sooke investigates heists involving some of the world’s most valuable works of art.

BBC Two, December 2013, 1 x 60 min.
