Behind the Scenes With Antiques Roadshow

Get a top-to-bottom look at how Antiques Roadshow comes together with WGBH's Jared Bowen. Among those waiting for appraisals, a father and son disagree about a small orb — is a shot put or a cannon ball? A woman learns the value of her Norman Rockwell painting (for which she is the subject). And Boston’s own Mayor Tom Menino and his wife Angela pay a visit, and have their own items appraised.

Besides that, get the inside scoop from the show’s crew and appraisers about what it takes to actually make it on the show…and what happens when you don’t.
