Coming up on Carte Blanche tomorrow (Sunday, February 10, 2019) on M-Net & M-Net HD (Channel 101) at 19h00 and again on M-Net Plus 1 (Channel 901) at 20h00 will be an insert about art theft.

Art theft is not a common crime, but when the thieves hit, they hit big – taking expensive paintings and drawings and selling them on the black market. Carte Blanche delves into the criminal underbelly of art theft and reveals why this is one of the most favoured illicit currencies in the world.

The programme was researched by Sinethemba Nogude and will be presented by Derek Watts and produced by Sasha Schwendenwein.
