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.
