Watch Antiques Roadshow on UK BBC TV
BBC Television Provide UK Web Users with Free Coverage of Antiques Roadshow on BBC iPlayer.
Antiques Roadshow is a long-running British television programme in which the general public have their antiques appraised by experts and are usually given a valuation, be it good news or bad.
The idea for the programme came from a BBC documentary made in 1977 about a London auction house touring England.
The pilot show was so successful that it was given a full commission and has become something of an institution, remaining on our screens ever since. The show in its current format has been running since 1979.
In the original BBC programme a variety of towns and famous landmarks were advertised as venues.
Now there are also international versions of the programme. Over the years a number of countries, including Canada and Australia, have tried to duplicate the format.
Antiques Roadshow has been hosted by Bruce Parker, Angela Rippon, Arthur Negus, Hugh Scully, Michael Aspel and most recently BBC newsreader (Fiona Bruce), who took on the main presenting role in 2008.
Episodes of Antiques Roadshow are usually filmed during the spring and summer and screened later the same year. While different locations are used around the country, some locations can feature in more than one episode.
A behind-the-scenes look at the Antiques Roadshow, which offers advice on buying and evaluating antiques, is published by the BBC within a monthly Home & Antiques magazine.
The US version of the show has also resulted in the publication of a magazine, Antiques Roadshow Insider, which gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the show, as well as articles about interesting items featured in the series.
