ANTIQUES ROADSHOW Celebrates Its 15th Anniversary on PBS

New Season Premieres Monday, January 3, 2011 at 8/7C PM

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - October 25, 2010) -  There's no buying and selling, no picking or pawning. ANTIQUES ROADSHOW is back with the real deal -- a give-and-take of questions and answers that can enlighten, entertain -- and sometimes -- transform lives.

ANTIQUES ROADSHOW's first stop, Miami Beach, yields the highest value appraisal of the season: a cheerfully unassuming mobile received almost fifty years ago as a gift from Alexander Calder, valued at $400,000 to $1,000,000!
