Vintage Roadshow episodes begin July 1

For the past 16 years, Antiques Roadshow has been bringing antiques, collectibles, and hidden treasures from around the country to public television audiences, and WSBE Rhode Island PBS has been proud to bring the show into your home each week (Sundays at 8 PM).

Now, Antiques Roadshow turns the camera lens on itself and goes back in time. Starting next Sunday, July 1st, you can enjoy six "new" vintage episodes. Antiques Roadshow producers dug into the archives to revisit past appraisals. The programs have been repackaged with all new graphics and updated appraisal values.

That last point bears repeating: updated appraisals. How would the treasures discovered yesterday fare in today's market? 

First up is Phoenix, Arizona. Shot in 1997, these appraisals originally broadcast as part of Antiques Roadshow’s second season. Here is a clip from the episode.

The vintage episodes will premiere on WSBE Rhode Island PBS: 
Vintage Phoenix - July 1 
Vintage Secaucus - July 8
Vintage Houston - July 15
Vintage Atlanta - July 22
Vintage San Francisco - July 29
Vintage Pittsburgh - August 5

For your convenience, WSBE Rhode Island PBS airs the same episode of Antiques Roadshow several times in one week. Here is our regular broadcast pattern:

Sundays at 3 a.m., 3 p.m., 8 p.m.
Mondays at 4 a.m.
Tuesdays at 12:30 a.m. (half after midnight)
Fridays at 2 p.m.
