PBS’s highest-rated ongoing primetime series, a production of WGBH Boston, is making its first Idaho stop on Saturday, June 29, at Expo Idaho in Boise as part of an eight-city summer production tour. ANTIQUES ROADSHOW airs in Idaho on Mondays at 7:00 p.m. MT/PT on Idaho Public Television.

At the Idaho stop, approximately 6,000 ticketed guests will receive free valuations of their antiques and collectibles by specialists from the country’s leading auction houses and independent dealers. Each guest is invited to bring two items for appraisal. As part of the visit, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW also will film field segments in and around Boise, highlighting area history and places of interest. From video gathered during the Idaho Expo stop, the series will produce three episodes for the 18th season of the series, airing in 2014.

“We are thrilled to have Boise as one of our eight tour stops this summer,” said ROADSHOW executive producer Marsha Bemko. “Guests will bring about 10,000 to 12,000 items to our appraisal event, so we’re sure to uncover some great treasures.”

The other 2013 summer tour cities are Detroit, June 1; Jacksonville, Florida, June 8; Anaheim, California, June 22; Knoxville, Tennessee, July 13; Baton Rouge, Louisiana, July 27; Kansas City, Missouri, August 10; and Richmond, Virginia, August 17.
