The recent heist at the Green Vault within the Dresden Castle in Germany has been speculated to be one of the largest art heists in history. City officials and experts consider the loss to be "priceless" and a "cultural loss", while the media considers the Baroque-era jewellery that was stolen to be worth one billion dollars.

The entire heist took about five minutes in total, and it may be possible that the jewels are already melted down or have been sold on the black market.

Rachel Simpson spoke to Dr Ngarino Ellis from the University of Auckland's art history department. Dr Ellis has a history in the law profession and is a member of the Art Crime Research Trust. Rachel and Dr Ellis spoke about the nature of art crime, why stealing art has historically been an assertion of power, and how exactly the Dresden thieves might have done it.

After that, Laura speaks with Emmy Rakete from People Against Prisons Aotearoa about the recent report from the Independent Police Conduct Authority that ruled it was justifiable for police to shoot an armed man 12 times and why People Against Prisons Aotearoa believes the facts don’t support that conclusion.  

Then, Rachel Simpson speaks with Dr. Ngarino Ellis from the University of Auckland's Art History Department about the most recent and the largest art heist in history at the Green Vault in Dresden Castle.

And Finally, Ben Goldson gives us a segment of neutral corner as he covers the recent protests in Iraq.

Last week Aramco, Saudi Arabia's oil company, was listed on the Riyadh exchange. The move has been many years in the making, but has not come without its fair share of changes. Exclusively listing on their national exchange, unmet valuation targets and a smaller amount of shares available have all changed how the company will now perform, as well as global pressures surrounding the climate emergency. James talked to Rod Oram, a business and political commentator, about what this could mean not only for Saudi Arabia, but how they and their economy is viewed by the rest of the world.
