When was the show here?

The crew spent several days in June filming at Expo Idaho for three one-hour episodes. Thousands of Idaho collectors and fans of the program showed up with everything from paintings and coins to postcards and campaign buttons to have them looked at by the celebrity appraisers.

How did Boise win the season-opening spot?

The Boise stop yielded one of the highest-value finds of the season: an oil painting of an Italian landscape done by Hudson River artist Sanford Robinson Gifford that appraised for $300,000.

When will it be on?

 “Antiques Roadshow” airs Mondays on Idaho Public Television. The Boise episodes will run three consecutive weeks at 7 p.m. on Jan. 6, 13 and 20.
