: Two Adventurers of the West

II: Phipps, who found the Treasure Ship
Mr A.R. Dawson

Treasure Ships! Doubloons! Pieces of eight! We never weary of hearing of the perils undertaken to intercept the Spanish galleons transferring the vast wealth of the New World to the Old. But in this talk Mr A. R. Dawson tells a treasure story different from most. Away on a West Indian reef William Phipps actually found a Spanish galleon with untold treasure. Nor is this incident without local connection, for Phipps' father was a Bristol man who settled in the Plantations with savage Red Indians as neighbours in the surrounding woods. How William Phipps, the backwoods boy, emerged from there, found vast wealth, was knighted by the King and returned as Royal Governor of Massachusetts is an outstanding romance of the seventeenth century, little known except to students of the beginnings of the American Republic.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
