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

Guests of ANTIQUES ROADSHOW don't always leave the convention hall with good news about their prized possessions. ANTIQUES ROADSHOW FYI correspondent Clay Reynolds catches up with one — whose pair of Federal knife boxes were identified as reproductions and appraised for $600 at the Richmond, Virginia, ROADSHOW — to hear how she handled the news. Later, expert Caroline Ashleigh tours actress Debbie Reynolds' $50 million movie memorabilia collection. Reynolds' son, Todd Fisher, plays tour guide, making stops at Marilyn Monroe's infamous white dress from The Seven Year Itch, Dorothy's ruby slippers from The Wizard of Oz, and other show-stopping cinema treasures. Turning back the clock to the late eighteenth century, FYI joins Ron Bourgeault at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts, for a lesson in the American Fancy period of decorative folk art — and what pieces have collectors seeing stars today. Lastly, expert Richard Wright talks about the "googly-eyed" doll he's just ga-ga to find — a black version of the popular doll produced in the early 1930s by the German company Kammer & Reinhard — only ever seen in the company's original catalogue — and valued at as much as $20,000 to $30,000 each.
