Part Three of The Current
The World of Stolen Art - Joshua Knelman
We started this segment with a clip describing a real-life art heist.
The international black market for stolen art is rife with malicious -- and considerably shrewder -- characters than the two we just heard about. And many of them operate here in Canada. Joshua Knelman goes inside that world in his new book, Hot Art: Chasing Thieves and Detectives Through the Secret World of Stolen Art. Joshua Knelman was in Toronto.
The World of Stolen Art - Robert Wittman
One of the detectives Joshua Knelman chronicled in his book is Robert Wittman. He's a former FBI agent who spent years undercover tracking down stolen art. Robert Wittman is also the author of Priceless: How I Went Undercover to Rescue the World's Stolen Treasures. He was in Philadelphia.
Last Word - Chris Mburu
We ended the program with a preview of something we're working on for Monday's program. It's the story of two people who barely knew each other ... how a small act on the part of one of them profoundly changed the life of the other. The Current's Ellen Saenger got the last word this morning.
