A museum in southern France - dedicated to the art of the painter - Etienne Terrus - has discovered that many of its canvasses are forgeries. A close examination carried out during renovation works revealed that dozens of them had not in fact been painted by the artist. It's estimated the cost of the forgeries amounts to almost two-hundred thousand dollars. The BBC's Tim Allman reports.
