Part adventure, part history lesson, and part treasure hunt, eight-time Emmy® Award-nominated ANTIQUES ROADSHOW marks its 16th season in 2011. PBS's highest-rated series, ROADSHOW is seen by almost 10 million viewers each week. Veteran television personality Mark L. Walberg serves as series host. In each hour-long ROADSHOW episode, specialists from the country's leading auction houses—Bonhams and Butterfields, Christie's, Doyle New York, Skinner and Sotheby's— and independent dealers from across the nation offer free appraisals of antiques and collectibles. ANTIQUES ROADSHOW cameras capture tales of family heirlooms, yard sale bargains and long-lost items salvaged from attics and basements, while experts reveal the fascinating truths about these finds.
ANTIQUES ROADSHOW is produced for PBS by WGBH Boston. Executive producer is Marsha Bemko.
