Pack rats who were unable to get themselves inside the Convention Center when "Antiques Roadshow" came to town last year, worry not. Tonight on CNN, you'll get the chance to look behind-the-scenes of one of PBS' most popular series.

Tonight's "CNN Newsstand" will feature a backstage look at the "Roadshow," courtesy of correspondent Bruce Burkhardt.

Included in the hourlong show is an interview with a woman who realized a dream many of us have had: a table she bought for $25 was appraised at nearly $1 million.

"CNN Newsstand" airs weeknights from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Also on CNN tonight, media mogul Ted Turner is the scheduled guest on "Moneyline." Anchors Willow Bay and Stuart Varney are planning to pepper the Time Warner vice chairman with all manner of live questions concerning the recently announced Time Warner-AOL merger. Turner's separation from wife Jane Fonda most likely will not come up as a topic of conversation.

"Moneyline" airs weeknights from 6: 30 p.m. to 7: 30 p.m.

HBO seeking film entries

HBO is soliciting entries for its third annual Short Film Award, with the winner getting $20,000 and recognition at the Acapulco Black Film Festival June 5-10.

To be eligible, a film must be fiction, 30 minutes or less in length and be the work of a black filmmaker. Films may be shot in any format and must have been produced between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 1999.

Last year's prize was won by Rod Gailes, whose "Twin Cousins" chronicled the friendship between two schoolgirls.

State of the State

Wondering how Maryland's been faring the past year? Then don't miss Gov. Parris Glendening's annual State of the State address, which will be carried live beginning at noon today (with a repeat at 11 p.m.) on MPT, Channels 22 and 67.

The Republican reaction, delivered by Sen. Martin G. Madden and Del. Robert Kittleman, follows.

Tonight's "Newsnight Maryland" (7 p.m.-7: 30 p.m., repeats midnight-12: 30 a.m.) will gauge reaction to the governor's address by the General Assembly.
