Art critic and journalist, Alastair Sooke, goes inside the glittering world of the super-rich to explore the remarkable stories behind the top ten most valuable paintings in the world sold at auction. The documentary tells the stories behind the astronomical prices of art and why the world's richest people want to spend their millions on it. This BBC documentary bears witness to the shocking wealth of the world's super-rich. A somewhat disturbing phenomenon revealed by the film is the concept of "provenance" - the added value a piece of art has due to the prestige and wealth of its previous owners.
