2:10 The Monuments Men - Robert Edsel
They were the price of freedom for some Jewish families, for others precious works of art were simply taken or deemed degenerate by the Nazis during the Second World War. Now investigators say the billion dollars worth of paintings by  Matisse, Marc Chagall and Otto Dix and others found in the squalid Munich flat of Cornelius Gurlitt this week may be just the tip of the iceberg.   
He is the son of Nazi art dealer Hildebrand Gurlitt,  who amassed masterpieces and told authorities they were  destroyed in the bombing of Dresden  No-one knows where 80 year old Cornilus Gurlit is now.
Robert Edsel has written about the group of men and women who tried to rescue art during the War, it's called  The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History.
A movie based on the book starring George Clooney will be coming out soon.

2:20  Ringo Starr's Book - David Hedley - When the publishers needed help promoting Ringo Starr's new book "Photograph" featuring pictures the Beatles' drummer took as the band's unoffical photographer, they made a call to Hedley's Bookshop in Masterton. David Hedley is a firm favorite of the Fab Four... helping George Harrison tour New Zealand with his book I Me Mine in the 1980's.
He's also helped  former Rolling Stone Bill Wyman and racing legend Jackie Stewart.
Genesis Publications tapped on David's shoulder to put together a mega pre-launch party in LA and the main event in Las Vegas. He did most of the work from his office in Masterton.

2:30 Reading - Heartland is a memoir by Neil Cross about life with his step father. As the boy grows, the man dwindles.
