The Antiques Roadshow
The Antiques Roadshow
Battie, David and Malcolm, Fiona (editors) with Atterbury, Paul and Kay, Hilary (consultants) and BBC
Partake in an on-the-page celebration of "Antiques Roadshow"'s continuing success! A full 27 years after its debut, the series remains one of the most popular on television, with its enduring appeal based on a winning combination of top-class antiques experts and enthusiastic collectors. Fiona Malcolm uncovers the show's origins, lists all the locations visited over the years, introduces the current team with illustrated biographies, and meets some of the experts at home to view the best-loved pieces in their own collections. Then, she takes readers on a behind-the-scenes tour to see the show's team of more than 60 people work to make each program happen. You'll get to follow all the finely tuned planning and technical stages that lead up to filming, the action on the shooting day itself, and the process of editing the program for broadcast. The heart of the book recalls over 50 of the most fascinating and valuable finds discovered on "Roadshow" - including a Ming vase, Faberge animals, and exceptional watercolor and oil paintings - with information on the piece and the story behind its discovery....
