    We love Antiques Road Show UK. It not only showcases some very nice antiques with their history BUT uses some wonderful historical sites in the UK for the show's setting. The history they give of those sites is just the icing on the cake. We wish, however, the show was an hour long. It goes by too fast.
  • Antiques Roadshow is where people bring in their antique stuff to find out if it has any value. Many of the items (which are not shown on the show) are worth nothing. But once in a while, a very rare piece will come along that is worth a LOT.moreless

    I enjoy this show a lot. My mom watches it so I started watching with her. I find it addictive and love hearing all the details about each piece and the history of both the item and how the owner acquired it. Like one girl had her grandmother's show which had been signed by Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. And one man had bought(en?) and picture because he liked the frame. Behind the picture, he found one of the original versions of the Declaration of INdependence!moreless

    Antiques Roadshow UK is a digest that gives viewers tools to enrich and improve their own treasure hunts. A cross-country excursion with stops in the UK's top antiques shows and auctions. Well known British television personality Michael Aspel takes his place as Dan Elias' counterpart across the pond, hosting this lively antiques series from the United Kingdom.

    A collaboration of WGBH's Antiques Roadshow and the original BBC series now in its 24th season, Antiques Roadshow UK is packed with flea market finds, heirlooms, and junkyard gems—many with a royal pedigree. Antiques Roadshow UK boasts a lively team of savvy British appraisers and a delightful cross section of local citizenry.



    Antiques Roadshow UK has traveled the length and breadth of the United Kingdom, from Lochgilphead in the Western Highlands to Selby in Yorkshire, from Caernarfon in Wales to Wisbech in Cambridgeshire, not to mention Barnstaple, Biddulph, Birmingham and Blackpool. There are special open-air shows from Forde Abbey, Knebworth House, Cliveden and Eastnor Castle, while another program comes from Glamis Castle, childhood home of the Queen Mother. And the royal connection continues with a special Victorian Roadshow from the Victoria & Albert Museum to mark the centenary of the death of Queen Victoria.

  • An okay show. It can be informative at times. But ultimately it gets boring after 10 minutes.

    5.5
    If you are an antique buff, this show is for you. For the rest of us, I think it'll hold your interest for about 10 minutes. Especially if there's something interesting being appraised on there.



    But making it through the full hour? No, it starts feeling really repetitive after a while. And the general feeling gets to be: "Yeah that vase is worth is $10,000. Wow. So what?"



    If you like History channel or educational programs, it might be worth checking out too from time to time.moreless
