Antiques Roadshow goes to Houston...

for a tour of the extraordinary museum and gardens that once were home to famed philanthropist and antiques collector Ima Hogg. Modern-day collectors arrive at the Reliant Center with everything from an early 19th-century box desk made by a renowned supplier to the British royal family, to a 1959 replica of artist Edith Parson's early 19th-century Turtle Baby bronze sculpture, valued at $35,000 to $40,000...8pm

Then Secrets of the Dead investigates the disappearance of the Minoans...the first Europeans to use writing, becoming the setting for famous Greek myths about Theseus, Icarus and the Minotaur. 5000 years ago the Minoans were wiped from the pages of history. Was it from a massive volcano that buried them in ash or Greek invaders who conquered and killed them? Drawing from the archaeological records, new revelations about Minoan language and religion, and shocking new geological discoveries, the film connects fact with fiction, and reveals the truth behind the reign and fall of the great Minoan civilization...9pm
