Fake Or Fortune? Previous Broadcasts

Van Dyck: What Lies Beneath (Episode #203H)

KQED 9: Mon, Dec 22, 2014 -- 9:00 PM

The tables are turned as art detective Philip Mould puts one of his own finds under the microscope, a painting he bought that he believes could be the work of 17th century artist Anthony van Dyck. If he is right, it could be worth a small fortune. But to prove it, the piece will have to undergo a thorough restoration, involving the removal of layers of paint - and then be authenticated by an impartial expert. Will Philip's reputation - and the painting - make it to the end of the journey unscathed?

Degas and the Little Dancer (Episode #201H)

KQED 9: Mon, Dec 8, 2014 -- 11:00 PM

Fiona Bruce and expert Philip Mould investigate more works of art with mysterious origins. They begin by examining a painting that owner Patrick Rice believes is by Edgar Degas. If correct, it could be worth about half a million pounds. Although Patrick's father bought it from a reputable dealer in 1945, the piece failed to make the official catalogue of the artist's work - meaning it is not classed as genuine by auction houses and is currently valued at only 200 pounds. Fiona and Philip trace the artwork back through time to find out whether it really was created by one of France's greatest artists.

    • KQED Plus OTA ? Optimistically planned maintenance: Fri 12/05 mid-morning

    • Mon 11/03/14: Work on KQED Plus tower (DT54)

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion.
