The Antiques Roadshow BBC;
I enjoy antiques a lot!
I enjoy going to vintage places scoping out vintage deals, but somehow the roadshow tv show would get boring......
i used to watch this a lot .. it was so interesting to see the value of some things!!
My late Grandparents loved this show and I grew up watching with them. I wish they would come to our area so I could get items appraised. Some of the things people bring in are weird and some are every day items. It surprises me how much some of the items are worth. It really is an interesting show and you learn so much watching.
Airing since 1979, the British series travels the country (with occasional trips to other countries, such as Canada and Australia), bringing together in each location specialists in antiques and fine arts to have them appraise items brought in by local residents, whether they are collectors looking to turn trash into treasure or ordinary folks hoping Grandma's old painting might now fund the kids' education. Items featured on the show often have an interesting story attached to them or have some connection to that episode's venue. While some items that are brought in are worth a fortune, others are worthless.
I collect antiques and enjoy watching this informative TV show. Local residents bring in their treasured antiques and experts in various fields appraise their valuables. Fascinating stories that offer a glimpse into the past of these beautifully crafted items. I've learned so much from watching these episodes.
