Antiques Roadshow

In 2013, almost 5,000 people from East Tennessee and beyond came through the Knoxville Convention Center for the filming of Knoxville’s debut on Antiques Roadshow, PBS’ No. 1-rated ongoing series. A steady stream of visitors hoped to discover the history behind a family heirloom or the value of an antique-shop find.

The center staff worked with Antiques Roadshow’s crew and more than 120 volunteers from East Tennessee PBS to ensure foot traffic went smoothly throughout the daylong process. After 17 previous seasons, Antiques Roadshow was a well-choreographed ballet from the minute guests walked in the door to the taped appraisals for national television.

In total, some 70 Roadshow appraisers saw more than 10,000 items. The Knoxville episodes of Antiques Roadshow will be seen by millions of viewers in 2014.
