Imagine... The Art That Hitler Hated, 10.35pm, BBC1

When police raided the Munich flat of an elderly recluse, Cornelius Gurlitt, in March 2012, they stumbled on more than 1,000 paintings by the likes of Matisse, Monet and Picasso that hadn't been seen since the Nazi era.

Gurlitt turned out to be the son of the art dealer of choice to the Third Reich, and this two-part start to a new series of Alan Yentob-fronted films looks at the thorny subject of Nazi-looted art.
