Canuck, UK nets hunt Nazi treasure

Broadcasters in Canada and the UK have teamed up to follow the work of an expedition attempting to salvage the fortunes stolen by the Nazis at the end of World War Two.

Corus Entertainment-owned History in Canada and More4, part of Channel 4 in the UK, will coproduce Hunting Nazi Treasure, which will be produced by Toronto-based Saloon Media and London’s BriteSpark. The series will air on History in 2017, with a broadcast date for C4 yet to be confirmed.

The series begins production in September and will aim to reveal what was stolen, how it was stolen and lead the hunt for this lost treasure, thought to be worth billions of pounds.

Robert Edsel, author of the bestselling book-turned-movie The Monuments Men, and founder and chairman of the Monuments Men Foundation for the Preservation of Art, will lead the investigation.

Joining Edsel on the team are investigative journalist, Conor Woodman, and World War Two historian James Holland.

The group will travel across Europe, Africa as well as the oceans around North and South America on the trail of the stolen items.

“Through this investigative approach, we pull the curtain back on one of the biggest thefts in history and share the important stories of those who were affected,” said Daniel Eves, senior VP of kids and general entertainment content at Corus Entertainment.
