Antiques Road Show Films in Bismarck

Posted: Updated:
People from all around the region traveled to Bismarck this weekend in hopes of striking it rich. The national television show Antiques Roadshow was here today to film the appraisal of  heirlooms.     

Bismarck is the first stop for the Antiques Roadshow season 19  tour, and it's the second time the show has been in the capitol city, the first was back in 2005. More than 44 hundred people applied for the three thousand available tickets. The appraisers saw between 10 and 12 thousand items and everyone involved says it's an exciting and surprising experience. Including a Williston man who found out a violin passed down through his family is worth up to 9 thousand dollars. 
"I had no idea what the value was when they asked me what I thought I said I have no idea," says a Williston resident. "It might not be worth anything except to me it's priceless because it's a family heirloom."

"People always ask do we see things in different cities," says TV show host, Mark L. Walberg. "I'm sure we'll see some things sort of indigenous to this area but you would be surprised how much stuff travels so literally when we open the doors to roadshow in any city. You really never know what's coming through the door."
The shows will air next winter.
