Some things age, but never get old enough, at least for “Antiques Roadshow.” Last summer at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center, a production crew from the PBS series welcomed crowds for appraisals of 10,000 wares.
The consultations, revelations and stories behind 60 to 70 of those items caught on camera will air for three episodes beginning at 8 p.m. Monday on both Carolinas PBS affiliates: ETV in South Carolina and UNC-TV in North Carolina. ETV will carry the second and third hours on Feb. 25 and March 25, respectively; check local listings for UNC-TV.
ETV – carried locally on WHMC-TV 23 of Conway and WITV-TV 7 of Charleston – also will broadcast “Antiques Roadshow Myrtle Beach: Myrtle Beach Behind The Scenes” at 9 p.m. Monday.
The show host, Florence native Mark L. Walberg, treated the tour stop last year as a homecoming, which included the married father of two visiting Brookgreen Gardens and Hobcaw Barony in Georgetown County for footage incorporated into the three hours of “Roadshow” to air nationwide.
The series, in its 17th season, and Walberg’s ninth as host, also has shared the spotlight on the landmark NBC sitcom “Frasier,” on an episode from 1999 called “A Tsar Is Born.”
Kids’ collectible stuff starts with marbles, and Matchbox cars. That’s a kids’ thing ... then people grow up and have careers and families, but later, they get interested in antiques and collectibles, and our show sort of transcends that.
What you’re getting here is ... a little history lesson that connects to a person or something related to the person, and that becomes fun for all ages.
