Fake or Fortune?

Fake or Fortune?

Every picture tells a story, but in FAKE OR FORTUNE? valuable paintings are about to be treated as crime scenes! Beyond the genteel galleries and upmarket auction houses of the art world lies a dimension rarely seen - a darker side of incalculable wealth, social ambition, and sometimes subterfuge. In this engaging mini-series, a recognized art sleuth, a doctor of history, and cutting edge scientists join forces to discover the truth behind controversial paintings. From Paris and Amsterdam to Cape Town and New York, the team employ old-fashioned detective skills, real-time investigations, and the latest forensic testing to reveal compelling tales of lost masterpieces, forgers and Nazi-looted art.
