The thousands of Tri-Staters who attended the taping of the PBS show "Antiques Roadshow" will get the chance to see themselves on television next spring.
WGBH, the producing station for the show, says the Cincinnati episodes will air on April 1, April 8, and April 15th at 8 p.m. WCET and Think-TV 16 will carry the episodes.
The show is known for discovering America's hidden treasures. A record breaking 37,000 people applied for tickets to the show - only 6,000 were available. It taped in July.
The Antiques Roadshow is in town! The show known for discovering America's hidden treasures will hold an appraisal event on Saturday at the Duke Energy Convention Center.
The event is part of its six city summer tour. Local 12 News Reporter Tiffany Wilson shows us why the crew spent the day at the Cincinnati Zoo.
For centuries, rhino horns like his have attracted attention. Tribes used to carve them into ceremonial cups. The Antiques Roadshow appraised a collection in Tulsa for one point five million dollars. "In recent years there's been a building of this mythology of rhino horn as a medicinal product and they notion that they cure cancer."
In the past decade, Fish and Wildlife Officials witnessed an increase in Rhino poachings. With rhino populations already in jeopardy, host Mark Walberg says educational segments like this one are an important part of the uncovering treasure show.
You will be able to see the full segment when it airs during the 2013 season. And some Cincinnatians will be able to see the full appraisal process this Saturday. "I look at myself as someone who unravels the history of an object."
Lark Mason is one of the art appraisers. "We're going to see a lot of people coming to see us and we're excited."
More than 37,000 people applied for just 6000 tickets. If you aren't one of the chose few...Walberg offers some valuable advice. "Hang out, wait around ten years and we'll come back to you."
The Antiques Roadshow will also spotlight the American Sign Museum and Cincinnati's Art Museum.
