Antiques Roadshow is bringing the entire crew to Seattle and will produce programs for the 2012-13 season. Local fans, by ticket and invitation, will present their treasures for review and appraisal. Some of those appraisals will be featured on-air when the program presents its Seattle shows.

On Wednesday, May 30, during a special pledge presentation beginning at 7 p.m., KBTC will offer Antiques Roadshow tickets to contributing viewers. KBTC viewers with tickets are invited to bring two items for appraisal by the Antiques Roadshow experts.
