    REBROADCAST: In his twenty years of service as the FBI’s top art theft investigator, Robert Wittman recovered one of the original copies of the Bill of Rights, a Rembrandt self-portrait, five Norman Rockwell paintings and Geranimo’s eagle feather war bonnet. That’s $225 million worth of stolen art and historical artifacts. He recently retired and has written a book about his life and work. It’s called Priceless: How I Went Undercover to Rescue the World’s Stolen Treasures. Wittman joined Marty early this summer in the Radio Times studio.
