Series Description

Fans of ANTIQUES ROADSHOW have wrestled with these weighty questions since the hit PBS series debuted eight years ago. Beginning Wednesday, January 19, 2005 the producers of ANTIQUES ROADSHOW proudly present this brand-new weekly series of 26 half-hour programs, revealing the answers to What happens to the stuff after the owners leave the convention hall? ... Where can I get the best deals? ... What are the hot collectibles right now? ... What do the appraisers collect? and more!

Hosted by ANTIQUES ROADSHOW's Lara Spencer with correspondent Clay Reynolds, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW FYI is the perfect complement to ANTIQUES ROADSHOW — a digest that gives viewers tools to enrich and improve their own treasure hunts. A cross-country excursion with stops in America's top antiques shows and auctions. Candid conversations and trade secrets from ROADSHOW experts. Unsolved mysteries surrounding stolen works of art and surprising updates on treasures from past ROADSHOW episodes. Series release date: 1/19/2005

Program Description

ANTIQUES ROADSHOW FYI correspondent Clay Reynolds discovers why a ship's passport signed by Thomas Jefferson — appraised on ANTIQUES ROADSHOW in Richmond, Virginia, for $4,000 to $5,000 — was the owner's passport to online adventure. Arms and militaria expert Bill Guthman invites Clay and the FYI audience to his home for a look at the extensive collection he's put together over the past 50 years. Moving along, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW FYI shows how to get a twentieth-century bicycle collection in gear. Clay wraps up the episode with appraiser David Lackey who describes the early twentieth-century proliferation of American regional artists, including Houston's Ruth Pershing Uhler, notorious for having burned a number of her paintings in the 1930s. Today, her remaining works are very desirable for collectors of Texas art and it's likely many are hanging, unnoticed in someone's back bedroom or forgotten in an attic.
