Chagall painting bought 'for tenth of the price'

A small British art museum has managed to capture a rare Chagall image of the crucifixion - a missing piece of the artist's wartime images.

The Ben Uri London Jewish Museum of Art bought the work in a secret operation designed to avoid alerting the world's big galleries to the existence of the painting.

David Glasser from the Ben Uri London Jewish Museum of Art explains how they managed to secure the painting.
