Fiona Bruce and expert Philip Mould investigate more works of art with mysterious origins. They begin by examining a painting that owner Patrick Rice believes is by Edgar Degas. If correct, it could be worth about £500,000. Although Patrick's father bought it from a reputable dealer in 1945, the piece failed to make the official catalogue of the artist's work — meaning it is not classed as genuine by auction houses and is currently valued at only £200. Fiona and Philip trace the artwork back through time to find out whether it really was created by one of France's greatest artists.
