Art Thefts

For those of you who don't give a damn about the Glitterball trophy, BBC Two is screening one of its rare art programmes on Saturday 21 December at 9pm: The World's Most Expensive Stolen Paintings (CLICK). Alastair Sooke delves into the murky world of art crime, worth billions of pounds. Approximately 47,000 works of art are reported missing each year! Shown is Rembrandt's Portrait of a Girl Wearing a Gold-trimmed coat (1632) which was stolen and then returned for a ransom of $10,000 (years ago).
