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

It's Anatomy of an Appraisal when host Lara Spencer catches up with the owner of a Civil War era amputation set, appraised at the Boston ANTIQUES ROADSHOW event in 2001 for $2,000 to $2,500. In a haunted basement in Salem, Massachusetts, ROADSHOW FYI correspondent Clay Reynolds has a spirited conversation with Mark B. Ledenbach, one of the world's foremost collectors of antique and vintage Halloween decorations, and then Clay goes one step beyond at New York's Hotel Chelsea — reputed to host its share of noncorporeal guests — for a séance, complete with conjurer's equipment once owned by Harry Houdini. Fittingly, Edgar Allan Poe has the last word when expert Ken Gloss reveals that a copy of Poe's first book — actually a pamphlet-size work entitled Tamerlane — might still lie buried within an old box of books, waiting to bring a six-figure fortune to its rescuer.
