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

A thrilling tale of a WWII plane crash in an area between India and Burma was captured by ANTIQUES ROADSHOW cameras in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, during an appraisal of native artifacts brought in by the pilot's granddaughter. Years later, a series of wild coincidences enables ANTIQUES ROADSHOW FYI to update that story, complete with original newsreel footage of the pilot's rescue. Later, appraiser David Lackey opens his Houston, Texas, home for a special tour of his vast and eclectic collections; and Clay chats with expert Allan Katz about the hot market for American folk art trade signs. Appraiser Arlie Sulka caps the show with the story of an extreme makeover turned extreme mystery: A magnificent Tiffany screen commissioned for the White House in 1882 by Chester A. Arthur was dismantled — perhaps even destroyed — in 1904, at the behest of Teddy Roosevelt. A century later, rumors have surfaced that pieces of the screen may still exist.
