PBS’ “Antiques Roadshow” cameras will be in Cincinnati for an appraisal taping Saturday, July 21. Cincinnati will be one of six locations visited this summer by PBS’ most-watched prime-time series, to record episodes to air in 2013 for the 17th season.
You have six days to apply for free tickets to “Antiques Roadshow,” which will tape three one-hour shows here (an exact venue has not yet been announced).
- Ticket applications and rules are available on pbs.org/antiques or by calling toll-free 888-762-3749. Pairs of tickets will be awarded through a random drawing to 3,000 people.
- Ticket requests must be received by 11:59 p.m. April 16. Postcard applications (no envelopes or letters) may be mailed to “Cincinnati Roadshow,” P.O. Box 249, Canton, MA 02021.
If you do get a ticket, here’s some advice: Don’t be a know-it-all if you want to be seen on PBS’ “Antiques Roadshow.”
“People who know everything about what they’re bringing often don’t make it on the air,” said John Eliot Jordan of Boston’s WGBH-TV, which produces PBS’ top-rated series (8 p.m. Monday, Channels 48, 16).
“We’re reluctant to record appraisals where the guest isn’t able to learn something new,” he said.
“Roadshow” this year also goes to Boston on June 9; Myrtle Beach on June 23; Rapid City, S.D. on July 14; Corpus Christi, Texas, on August 4, and Seattle on August 18.
