MISSOULA – Join the “Backroads of Montana” crew as they look at some of the most notable, interesting and unique collections featured on the program.

The award-winning travelogue premieres a new special titled “The Collections” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 27, on MontanaPBS.

"It’s fun to look back and see some of the people who have started interesting collections,” host William Marcus said. “There’s everything from hankies to antique telephones to Tonka trucks.”

For more than 25 years, “Backroads of Montana” has told the stories of interesting people, out-of-the-way places and unique events that make Montana so special.

Marcus and the three producers of the program, Gus Chambers, John Twiggs and Ray Ekness, narrate the special program.

“The Collections” will re-air at midnight Wednesday, Nov. 28, and 11 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 29.
