Program Description

Viewers share in the delight and disappointment of Durham, North Carolina collectors as ANTIQUES ROADSHOW experts reveal the true value of their silver, porcelain, musical instruments, furniture and more. While in the Research Triangle area, host Chris Jussel visits the historic Duke family homestead and Duke University—two of the many North Carolina landmarks traced to this philanthropic family. At the Durham Civic Center, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW appraisers still encounter some interesting finds: autographed photos of Buffalo Bill and Annie Oakley and a compelling American Impressionist painting.
