'Antiques Roadshow' Episodes Taped in Omaha
Will Begin Airing On NET May 14

Antiques Roadshow HeaderThree episodes of "Antiques Roadshow" which were taped at the Qwest Center in July of 2004 will be broadcast on three consecutive Mondays in May on NET1 (Cox Channel 12).

The first hour of appraisals from Omaha airs Monday, May 14, followed by the second on May 21, and the third hour on May 28. All three episodes air at 7 p.m. CDT.

The first hour features a collection of letters and drawings chronicling the contentious relationship between the owner's feisty great-grandmother and Frank Lloyd Wright, the renowned architect hired to remodel her house. The collection is estimated to be worth $100,000 to $125,000.

In the second show, a woman brings a striking piece of 1960s-era memorabilia for appraisal. Although she only paid $200 for a 1961 "Breakfast at Tiffany’s" movie poster, Audrey Hepburn memorabilia has skyrocketed in value since her death and the poster's value is estimated between $4,500 and $5,000 today.

Among the thousands of cherished heirlooms featured in the third hour, "Antiques Roadshow" appraisers find a circa-1770 Chippendale desk complete with the Civil War era documentation and an incredibly rare daguerreotype of the mysterious Edgar Allan Poe, worth $30,000 to $50,000.

The "Antiques Roadshow" episodes will also be repeatws on three consecutive Thursdays. Hour one airs Thursday, May 17, with hour two May 28, and hour three May 31. All of these episodes air at 8 p.m. CDT on NET1.

The Omaha shows were taped in July 2004 and will air in May 2007.

So, does that mean the shows themselves are antiques?

Letters, drawings, posters, Hepburn memorabilia... what, no antique combines???

Those eight-track tapes may actually be worth sumpthin'.

Quadraphonic versions, especially certain rock and roll groups, can getcha' several hundred bucks on eBay.

But, most are worth little or up to 20 or so bux.

Most antiquey thing Old Coot espies around this proverbial Hearland are attitudes.

Them ain't worth nuthin'.
