History Detectives (PBS)

Does anyone watch History Detectives on PBS? I have a TiVo wishlist for history programs, and I recently discovered this program. It is really quite interesting.

Each hour-long show show is split up into 3 segments. In each segment, a person that has an antique/old object (could be anything: a photo, a book, a building, etc.) asks the History Detectives to research their object and report back with their findings. It is amazing to see what these "detectives" can dig up on the history of a simple pocket-watch, a 18th century drawing, or a Revolutionary War bugle. Kind of a mix between Antique Roadshow and CSI.

For more info, here is the official website: http://www.pbs.org/opb/historydetectives/index.html

I'll take the silence as a "no."
