Roadshow Meets Minneapolis
In three episodes, Roadshow takes on Minneapolis! Host Mark Walberg takes you to the American Swedish Institute to discuss cherished Mora clocks; is surrounded by military aviation memorabilia regarding WWII animation propaganda by Disney Studios; and visits Wabasha Street Caves, the perfect noir background to discuss the history of flashlights. Then of course, the appraisals begin!
