Series Description

Documentary series with international stories. Predecessor to FRONTLINE, executive producer David Fanning. Five seasons from 1978-1981. "WORLD has presented a series of international documentaries. One of our concerns has been to show the world as others see it, and we are committed to the idea that we should include those who normally don't have a chance to have their voices heard." -- quote from opening to Blacks Britannica (1978) Series release date: 1978

Program Description

Every antique is a survivor, but considering some have made it through exceptionally dangerous circumstances, it is amazing they survived at all. In this special episode, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW highlights amazing tales of rescues, near misses, and beating the odds with treasures that have endured wars, natural disasters, fires and more. A French Blue John urn that remains largely intact despite multiple gunshots is appraised for $3,000 to $5,000. Other highlights include a New Orleans Chess Table that held strong through Hurricane Katrina and hotel stationary — bearing the names of three of the four Beatles — that escaped a fiery end.
