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: "Austin (Hour One)"
Antiques Roadshow marks its 10th trip to Texas with a stop in Austin, where host Mark L. Walberg and appraiser Laura Woolley travel to the Briscoe Center to talk about a collection donated by music legend Willie Nelson. Appraisal highlights include a spinning wheel gifted to the owner’s mother by Mahatma Gandhi.
