Last week at Christie's in Amsterdam more than 180,000 pieces of 18th-century Chinese porcelain were auctioned in a spectacular five-day sale - the largest event of its kind to take place. 'The Nanking Cargo' was the result of months of intensive search and recovery by a remarkable partnership between Captain Michael Hatcher, a British-born salvage expert, Swiss geophysicist Max De Rham and their team of divers working in the South China Sea. It was the cargo of a Dutch East Indiaman homeward bound from Canton, an ill-fated voyage begun in December 1751 and only to reach its originally intended destination some 234 years later. One chest of the cargo, however, was definitely not destined for Europe - the discovery of 125 unique Chinese gold ingots was to come not only as the final dramatic surprise of the recovery, but as the key to the positive identification of the Geldermalsen whose destruction came on the night of 18 January 1752.

A viceroy that looks like a monarch, an orchid that smells like a bee, a beetle that flashes in code: what have they in common? They are all impostors.
In the battle to eat and avoid being eaten, deceit takes many forms. The story of these impostors is one of the most remarkable in nature. Narrator Barry Paine
