There's no greater thrill than when the Antiques Roadshow appraisers expose a fake and tell the hapless owner of some painting, highboy or Colt .45 that their item has been doctored by a charlatan. When that happens, the gleam of enthusiasm and human greed in the visitor's eyes melts to humble disappointment. Now that's a perfect television moment.
