Brit award-winning violinist Ruth Palmer travels the world in search of Stradivarius violins, violas and cellos. Crossing continents, she discovers a world of fraud, fakery and fierce rivalries between collectors. With the instruments worth up to £16million each, she finds that the prestige of owning one of them is taking them out of musicians' hands and into those of some of the most rich and powerful people in the world.
