Part adventure, part history lesson, and part treasure hunt, WGBH's Antiques Roadshow is the highest-rated series on PBS. Watch as auction house experts and independent dealers offer free appraisals of family heirlooms, yard sale bargains, and items salvaged from attics and basements, revealing the fascinating story — and, sometimes, surprising value — of each object.
Antiques Roadshow: "Miami Beach (Hour Two)"
Premieres Monday, Nov. 10, 8pm, WGBH 2
In Miami Beach, Florida, host Mark L. Walberg is beachcombing for tips from appraiser Kevin Zavian about how to buy and sell gold. Highlights include an archive of correspondence and photos, circa 1965, marking the friendship between a cigar-loving Winston Churchill and the guest’s Cuban great-aunt and uncle.
