Boise Area Prepares For Popular National Television Show
One of America's most-watched television shows will air its episodes filmed in Boise this week. We first told you about the filming of PBS's Antiques Roadshow last year. Apparently, it takes a long time to go from filming to airing shows through post-production.
How would one describe one of Public Broadcasting's most popular shows involving people and their trash and perspective treasures? It is a show that continues to grow viewers not only for the people involved but also for what they bring to have appraised or reviewed.
The three episodes featuring Boise's Botanical Gardens will air on Mondays beginning April 3, followed by April 10 and April 17 at 7 pm, according to a release from Idaho Public Television.
The Idaho Statesman first reported this story on Monday.
