Antiques Roadshow: Production

Antiques Roadshow is PBS's most-watched ongoing series, with an average of 8.5 million viewers each week. This television show asks the public to bring in their collectibles and antiques to production locations across the country. Thousands of people arrive at our locations to have their items appraised free of charge. Selected items are recorded with an expert from one of the leading auction houses in America. The program is in production during the summer and involved in pre-production and post-production in the fall, winter, and spring months.

Internship Description: 
The role of the intern on Antiques Roadshow will be as a member of the production team, providing much-needed support in the production office. The intern will be immersed in the environment of television production at WGBH. In the summer months, the intern will act as liaison between the traveling crew and the in-house production staff: updating production files as information comes in from the road, sending out production schedules to the crew, logging footage from the events and generally assisting everyone in the office. During most of the fall and spring, the intern will assist with both pre and post-production: logging footage, doing research, joining the production team in weekly show screenings, preparing materials for the summer tour and maintaining administrative files and databases. The intern will also have the opportunity to attend an audio mix and/or sit in on a session with the editor.

  • Must be able to work effectively both independently and with a team of people in a fast-paced, high-pressure environment
  • Familiarity with Macs as well as a general aptitude with computers is necessary
  • Television production experience is very helpful but not always required; however, a strong interest in television production is necessary.
