Canadian Antiques Roadshow

October 5, 2007 

Canada's favourite antiques show, the CANADIAN ANTIQUES ROADSHOW, began its fourth season on CBC Television on Friday, October 5th at 7:30 p.m. The enormously popular show visited six Canadian communities this season: Vernon, BC; Lethbridge, AB; Thunder Bay, ON; London, ON; Sherbrooke, QC and Charlottetown, PE.

The first show from Thunder Bay's living history museum, Fort William, airs Friday November 9th on CBC Television beginning at 7:30 p.m.

The items the appraisers examine in Thunder Bay are varied and exceptional and include everything from a fabulous carousal horse, some very rare Prisoner of War artifacts to an art deco gramophone pulled from someone's garbage and some Royal memorabilia culled from a local hotel.

The show will re-air on Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. Three more episodes from Thunder Bay will air in the New Year.

Host Valerie Pringle and the ROADSHOW appraisers were delighted by the turn out to this year's events and by the amazing trinkets and treasures- both large and small- that people brought to the venues. The crowds during this year's tour surpassed any previous year, proving the show's enduring appeal as both a live event and a television show.

"I think the show really found its niche this year," says Executive Producer, John Brazill. "The public response even in the smaller communities we visited was overwhelming."

"The Canadian Antiques Roadshow continues to unearth the most extraordinary relics from Canada's history and teaches us that history in the most charming way," says Ms. Pringle.

CANADIAN ANTIQUES ROADSHOW is directed by Michael Lewis, Denise Poirier and Christie McDonald.  Executive producers are John Brazill and Mark Pederson.  It is a production of Wallace Cove Productions in association with CBC Television.
