Inside secret vault holding long-lost art treasures

26 March 2014 Last updated at 20:32 GMT

Cornelius Gurlitt is a reclusive man, but he was recently found to be holding one of the world’s biggest private art collections – close to 1,500 pieces that he had stored at his homes in Munich and Salzburg.

It is though much of it came from his father, a dealer licensed by the Nazis to buy and sell art, and may have been stolen from Jewish families.

The works, by artist such as Picasso, Renoir, Monet, are now being held in secure warehouses and vaults by restorers and experts trying to trace their history.

The BBC’s Stephen Evans was granted exclusive access to look at some of the long-lost masterpieces which had been kept hidden for decades.

A year and a half into the release of classified documents by Edward Snowden, the existence of far-reaching National Security Agency surveillance is common if controversial knowledge.But until The Intercept published new documents this month, the role of American companies in that surveillance was less than clear, ProPublica’s Julia Angwin and Jeff Larson tell Editor-in-Chief Steve Engelberg in this week’s podcast.The new documents describe “contractual relationships” between the NSA and unnamed U.S. companies and reveal that the NSA has “under cover” spies working at or with some of them. And indeed, it would be difficult for the NSA to do its work without their help, Larson says.

US Not the Only One Eavesdropping

The US has been widely criticized for the National Security Agency telecommunications and Internet surveillance programs revealed by whistleblower Edward Snowden in 2013, but—and this may come as no surprise to many—the US is not alone in its snooping. Vodafone, the second-biggest mobile phone company in the world, has revealed that government agencies in six countries have inserted their own equipment into the Vodafone network or diverted its data traffic through government systems in order to listen to and record calls on the network.
