    'Hidden Armor, Found Treasure'

    Smithsonian Channel to Air 'Hidden Armor, Found Treasures'

    Antique Arms Specialist Hosts Original Series

    SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- "Hidden Armor, Found Treasures",
    a new series dedicated to exploring the antique arms, armor, militaria and
    other treasures, will be airing on Smithsonian Channel throughout December
    and January. The announcement was made by David Royle, Executive Vice
    President, Programming and Production for Smithsonian Networks.

    The three, thirty minute shows feature Greg Martin as the main host,
    with co-host Malou Nubla, a two-time Emmy Award winning television host.
    Martin is a nationally-known antique weapons specialist and collector, TV
    personality and author who heads the San Francisco auction house bearing
    his name and is the leading auction house in the U.S. for antique arms and

    "Hidden Armor, Found Treasures" originates in San Francisco, but
    showcases various "finds" from across the country. There are four key
    elements to "Hidden Armor, Found Treasures" appraisals, where guests bring
    their potential treasures to be valued by the experts; home visits, so
    viewers can see the items in context of a person's home; demonstrations
    that delve into the mechanics of weapons and show how they work; and the
    actual sales of some items at auction, so viewers can follow the process
    and see what happens when these items actually come to market. The series
    will focus on things like guns, swords and knives -- plus military
    characters, history, treasure hunting and money thrown in for good measure.

    Martin explained that the show features some of the amazing discoveries
    that people have hidden away in their attics or basements. "Like searching
    for Easter eggs, this show captures the thrill of the hunt," he said. "We
    think a program that combines human interest, history, discovery and profit
    is an authentic reality show that will intrigue many people -- and given
    the subject matter, men in particular."

    The series is produced by Michael Hoff Productions, Inc. (MHP), one of
    America's leading producers of factual television. Founded in 1993 by
    President and Executive Producer Michael Hoff, MHP is a pioneer of High
    Definition television production and unique non-fiction series formats.

    highlighting America's historical, cultural and scientific heritage. Visit
