Antique experts in TV scandal
■ “Antiques Roadshow”
producers cut ties with two
appraisers after it was
dicovered that the pair had
BOSTON (AP) - Each week, the
“Antiques Roadshow” features a
story that seems too good to be true,
as someone finds out that their piece
of “junk” is actually a valuable treas
The rags-to-riches stories are part
of the charm of the public television
show in which regular people have
their wares appraised by antiques
But producers said that in one
instance, what seemed too good to be
true was just that. On Thursday, the
show cut ties to two experts who
staged “an extravagant deception”
that violated the show’s premise.
“I think they thought they were
helping the show, but they were
wrong,” said Peter McGhee, vice
president of national programs at
WGBH-TV in Boston, which pro
duces “Antiques Roadshow.”
The incident occurred during the
show’s debut season in 1997.
A man showed an appraiser a
Civil War sword found in his attic that
he used to cut watermelon.
Appraisers were delighted when
presented with the weapon and told
the man it was worth $35,000.
But the two appraisers - George
Juno and Russ Pritchard - actually
knew the man who brought in the
sword, and they knew the sword’s his
tory, show officials said.
McGhee said the station was cut
ting ties with Juno and Pritchard and
removing them from segments in
future shows and shows that might be
“Our objective at this point is to
deny them any further benefit from
association with the ‘Roadshow,’”
Juno, contacted at his business in
Allentown, Pa., denied any wrongdo
ing and said the station had been pres
sured by rival experts in the antiques
“There were no fake interviews.
... There was never proof,” he said. “It
was pressure put on the station by our
competitors in an attempt to get us off
He added, “We still think very
highly of WGBH and think the
‘Roadshow’ is a great thing.”
Pritchard, who has a business near
Philadelphia, did not return telephone
or pager messages Thursday.
“Antiques Roadshow” is watched
by about 14 million people each week
and has gained such popularity that it
was used as a premise for an episode
of the sitcom “Frasier,” McGhee said.
The show travels around the coun
try, allowing thousands of people to
show up at tapings to have items
examined by dozens of appraisers.
Appraisers who think they have a
good story and a good item approach
the shoW’s producers. About 15 to 20
segments are included in each show.
The appraisers aren’t paid but
gain national publicity if they appear
on the program.
