La Trinidad Valencera
When two gleaming bronze guns, bearing the arms of England and Spain and the date 1556, emerged from the sea in February 1971, the City of Derry Sub-Aqua Club knew for certain that they had rediscovered La Trinidad Valencera after a silence of 400 years. This massive Venetian merchant ship, hi-jacked in Sicily and forced to join the ill-fated Spanish Armada, had limped, battered and sinking, into a remote bay in Donegal on 12 September 1588.
Magnus Magnusson tells the story of the club's trials, tribulations and triumphs over the last three years as a group of enthusiastic amateur divers came to terms with one of the most important wrecks in the British Isles and a momentous historical discovery.
... this quiet epic, made where it was made and when it was made, gives enduring hope for the North - and the world. (IRISH TIMES) Producer RAY SUTCLIFFE

by ALAN PLATER
Six tall stories on the Road to Wembley: with Story 6: The Man of Law's Tale
A man of mystery there was, in coat of blue,
Who spoke few words, except when spoken to.
Where'er he walked, he walked exceeding tall,
Flexing his knees to say: Good
Evening All.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
