The man who believes he unmasked a thief at the British Museum and the BBC team who told this story of history disregarded, beauty destroyed, and trust betrayed.

Last summer, news that thousands of treasures were stolen, damaged and missing from one of the world’s most famous museums sparked global headlines. But why did it take the British Museum so long to realise what had happened? What made Danish antiquities dealer Dr Ittai Gradel become an amateur detective on the hunt for a thief? And how did the BBC turn the story of this news-making scandal into a hit podcast? BBC culture editor Katie Razzall in conversation with Ittai Gradel and investigative producers Larissa Kennelly and Darin Graham about Thief at the British Museum. It’s a world of ancient treasures scattered across the globe and a deepdive into the history of Greek and Roman gemstones, with more than a whiff of a whodunnit.
