In 1961, Kempton Bunton, a 60 year old taxi driver, stole Goya’s portrait of the Duke of Wellington from the National Gallery in London. He sent ransom notes saying that he would return the painting on condition that the government invested more in care for the elderly. What happened next became the stuff of legend. An uplifting true story about a good man who set out to change the world and managed to save his marriage.

The Duke is now out in cinemas – across the world. Much of it was filmed in Bradford – here you can see behind the scenes and some of the many Bradford locations which were used in January 2020.
