|DH WEB Designs and Hosts Companion Website for Chesapeake Collectibles, Maryland Public Television's Newest Program - Premiering on January 8, 2011|
DH WEB recently put the finishing touches on a brand new companion web site for MPT's newest program Chesapeake Collectibles. The website features the ability for viewers to register and upload both photos and videos of collectible items that have a history or connection to Maryland. The new website also features episode and related information on the show.
Chesapeake Collectibles explores the Chesapeake Bay region's distinctive history through its treasures, people and their stories. Each episode of the series takes you back through time and all over Maryland, like an entertaining walk through the past. Hear the stories behind favorite family heirlooms, while expert appraisers make the distinction between what is "collectible" and what is not.
Join host Rhea Feikin each week and discover the flavor and uniqueness of our area through its antiques and collectibles!
Chesapeake Collectibles, is Maryland Public Television's newest program that looks at the treasures you may have in your attic, your garage or at your grandmother's house. It's an educational and fun half-hour that searches for and unveils some of the most fascinating antiques and treasures found across our Chesapeake region.
Whether it's a colonial-era "witching jug," a letter written by George Washington or some molten eyeglasses from the Great Baltimore Fire, you'll discover the intriguing stories our possessions can share with us. And their values will surprise the owners and amaze you!
Hosted by MPT's own star, Rhea Feikin, and assisted by MotorWeek host John Davis, Chesapeake Collectibles also includes short features on some of the region's most notable collections. We'll see the frenzy at a huge weekly antiques auction on Maryland's Eastern Shore and a collection of airplanes, built in nearby Hagerstown, which changed aviation history.
You'll meet a 90-year-old man whose sons presented him with a 1936 Cord automobile he once restored but sold decades ago. These are just a few of the amusing and compelling windows into how collectibles can touch and change lives.
Produced at MPT by Ken Day, Chesapeake Collectibles is made possible by MPT's New Initiatives Fund, which is sponsored by Irene and Edward Kaplan, along with Preston Scheffenacker Properties. MPT would like to thank SECU and Smyth Jewelers for their continuing support of MPT and Chesapeake Collectibles.
