Friday nights on KVCR are for discovering fascinating stories of history. At 7:00pm, on History Detectives, someone claims they have a wooden club that may have once belonged to Teddy Roosevelt. Then at 8:00pm, on Antiques Roadshow, someone has an early abstract painting by modern artist Chuck Close (received by the guest's father as repayment for an $8 loan) now valued at $100,000 to $150,000. Then at 9:00pm, on Fake or Fortune, more than 100,000 oil paintings have been photographed and posted online as part of the Your Paintings initiative - 17,000 of them listed as "artist unknown. " Philip and his colleague Bendor Grosvenor believe they've identified several missing works by artist Thomas Gainsborough. Can they prove it?
