For the first time in its 28 year run the Antiques Roadshow made its way to Australia in 2005, exclusively for The LifeStyle Channel.
A team of the Roadshow’s leading antiques and fine arts specialists, along with top Australian experts, were on hand to offer free advice and valuations to visitors who had raided their attics to bring along family heirlooms, household treasures and car boot bargains. The British team includes regular experts including well-known favourites such as Hilary Kay, Eric Knowles, Paul Atterbury and Tim Wonnacott along with presenter Michael Aspel.
After receiving 25,000 applications for the 5,000 tickets available, people came from all over Australia clutching their personal treasures to be seen by one of the experts on hand. Whether it was a $100,000 painting or a $5 cup and saucer, everyone received an expert opinion on their treasures. As well as the antiques and their history, this unique television series reveals remarkable human interest stories which emerge as the owners explain how these articles came into their possession.
