Should cultural artefacts be returned to their country of origin?

The return of the series that invites figures from opposing sides of a political issue to listen to each other, and explore the values and experiences that inform their position.

Anne McElvoy returns with the series that invites figures from opposing sides of a political issue to listen to each other - and to come to an understanding of the beliefs, aims and experiences that inform their position.

In the first episode, historian Dr Zareer Masani and the Guardian columnist and former chair of the National Trust Sir Simon Jenkins discuss the principles underlying the question of whether objects of cultural or artistic significance should be returned to the places from whence they came?
