ANTIQUES ROADSHOW cameras watch as owners recount tales of family heirlooms, yard sale bargains and long-neglected items salvaged from attics and basements, while experts reveal the fascinating truths about these finds. Mark L. Walberg hosts.

"Baton Rouge, La." (Hour One) - In Baton Rouge, host Mark L. Walberg joins appraiser Leigh Keno at Magnolia Mound Plantation to learn about Campeche chairs.

Highlights include a French Art Deco diamond and platinum ring, ca. 1930, purchased at auction for $30 as cubic zirconia and now valued at $25,000 to $35,000; a copy of the book "The History of Magic," with an inscription from the owner’s old college roommate — Jim Morrison of The Doors; and four Rembrandt and James McNeill Whistler etchings that were collected by the guest’s father from around 1940 to 1960 and are appraised for $100,000.
