BBC Worldwide is to launch an Antiques Roadshow magazine after signing a licensing deal with Kelsey Media.
The monthly title will be available from next spring and will be launched along with its own stand-alone website, including a range of new content about the long-running programme.
The magazine will build on the stories revealed in the programme, which has been running for 36 years. It will also follow-up on the more exciting discoveries made by the Antiques Roadshow team.
Nicholas Brett, director of publishing at BBC Worldwide, said: “The birth of a new BBC magazine is always exciting and this one is going to be very special. Antiques Roadshow is one of the most loved BBC programmes with a huge, passionate and knowledgeable fan-base. We’re confident Kelsey will make them a magazine they’ll love and value.”
Simon Shaw, series editor of Antqiues Roadshow, added: “We are thrilled to be working with Kelsey on this exciting collaboration. Our viewers are always fascinated to know more about the stories behind the objects featured on Antiques Roadshow and a dedicated magazine is an ideal way to deliver behind the scenes secrets to enhance their enjoyment of the show.”
