Britain's Lost Masterpieces

Art experts Jacky Klein and Dr Bendor Grosvenor visit our most diverse and fascinating museums as they track down previously unknown paintings by some of the world's great artists. The Swansea Museum store contains everything from a stuffed pigeon to a police car, but can Bendor and Jacky reveal a multimillion-pound lost masterpiece that will not only become a jewel of Swansea museum's collection, but also rewrite art history? Also, a rare appearance at the museum of a giant painting of local coal miners prompts Jacky to re-examine the life of the man who painted them, the renowned Polish artist Josef Herman. She tracks down those who remember him in south Wales.
