PBS' most-watched primetime series, "Antiques Roadshow," filmed a trio of episodes in the Hub this summer and the network has set premiere dates for the shows: Jan. 28, Feb. 4, and Feb. 11, all at 8 p.m. on WGBH.
Antique collectors and appraisers filled the Boston Cenvention and Exhibition Center on June 9, 2012. Out of the 27,246 ticket applicants, 6,015 people received free tickets to the event by random drawing.
The Jan. 28 episode features a guest appearance by Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino. He brought an oil painting by Aldro Hibbard to the large-scale appraisal event. On Feb. 4, you can tune in to see a collection of Beatles memorabilia valued at the price of a new luxury sedan (no spoilers, we like to keep you guessing.)
