WUCF TV Goes Behind-The-Scenes of Antiques Roadshow

Posted by Jennifer Cook on

On May 11, WUCF TV gives Central Florida viewers an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the making of ANTIQUES ROADSHOW, PBS’s most- watched ongoing series.

ANTIQUES ROADSHOW took over the Orange County Convention Center last June to record three one-hour episodes that will air later in May on PBS stations across the country.

Approximately 5,000 people attended the Orlando event, bringing with treasures and collectibles that were appraised by the country’s leading auction houses and independent dealers.  This WUCF-produced special highlights the people and items of Central Florida.

“Antiques Roadshow gives viewers a unique opportunity to not only participate in one of the most popular television programs, but to learn history about items that hold important meaning in their lives,” said Dr. Phil Hoffman, WUCF Executive Director. “We met some great people at the Orlando event, and I can’t wait for the rest of Central Florida to see some of the items brought in for appraisal.”

Join WUCF on Thursday, May 11 at 8 p.m. and hear from the appraisers and delve into the history of the treasures found here in the Orlando area.
