That's the US version.

"Fans of PBS’s ‘Antiques Roadshow‘ will want to catch the upcoming El Paso episode, just filmed yesterday in the historic Texas City. From the El Paso Times:

A book by J.R.R. Tolkien and an Andy Warhol pop art collection were among the most expensive items appraised at Saturday’s PBS “Antiques Roadshow” at the Judson F. Williams Convention Center.

“The most expensive item appraised (Saturday) was a first edition of ‘The Hobbit’ with original dust jacket and the signature of J.R.R. Tolkien,” said Judy Matthews, for the “Antiques Roadshow.” “It was appraised at between $80,000 and $100,000.” "
