Antiques Roadshow is a television series in Britain produced by BBC Studios that features appraisers specialised in antiques who travel from different parts of the world to the United Kingdom to appraise the antiques that are bought by the people. The history of the series began from 1979 when the first season of the show was released. The show was based on a documentary series that was about an auction house where people throng to buy antique pieces. The pilot of the show was made in Hereford in May 1977 and was hosted by Bruce Parker.
The series is also released in other countries like Canada and Australia. The series is an interesting piece where people who have the habit of collecting things tries to sell their trash by presenting them as treasures, and some people hold genuine antique items looking to sell to make some money. While some antiques turn out to worthy ones, others are found to be useless. Each episode features specialist antique appraisers visiting a particular place and appraising the treasures of the locals and evaluating their worth. The 40th season of the series was broadcasted on September 24, 2017. The series features Mark L.
