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

FYI correspondent Clay Reynolds tracks down one of a trio of brothers to find out what they did with the rare collection of watercolors by their great-grandmother, Nora Brodie Hoare, after the artwork was appraised on ANTIQUES ROADSHOW, JR in 1998. It's lights, camera, action, antiques and collectibles at two very different Hollywood prop houses with expert Rudy Franchi, who makes a show-stopping discovery among the aisles of objects used in famous movies. Then, find out how 2004 stacked up when it came to breathtaking auction prices. What were some of the highest price tags in the world when the gavel came down on paintings, furniture, books, and sports memorabilia? "Why Not Take All of Me?" could be the theme song for J. Michael Flanigan's report on the puzzling phenomenon of valuable highboy chests that are missing their tops. The tops, which may be masquerading as small chests of drawers, could boost the value of the pieces from five figures to $1,000,000 and more.
