“Antiques Roadshow” is coming back to Tulsa, if only on TV.
PBS’s popular traveling appraisal show, which filmed in Tulsa the summer of 2011 and aired two episodes about the visit in January, will present three separate specials as part of the series’ 16th season.
One of those specials, “Junk in the Trunk 2,” will feature previously un-aired footage from Tulsa.
“Junk in the Trunk 2” takes the viewer back through the six cities “Antiques Roadshow” visited on the 16th-season tour, including Tulsa, a show spokesperson recently said.
Viewers will see never-before-seen appraisals from the show’s archives.
This episode, which will air Nov. 5, will feature items such as a Missouri Regiment Colt pistol worth more than $22,000 (appraised during the Tulsa show), as well as sapphire and diamonds from Tiffany, and Dr. Seuss’ signature.
Another special, “Cats & Dogs,” will feature canines and felines in portraits, sculptures and home decor. It will air Nov. 12.
Finally, “Greatest Gifts” will showcase guests with items that they received as presents. These items have turned out to be valuable enough to win the gift recipients a moment in the spotlight. Just in time for the season giving, this special will broadcast Dec. 17.
