: An Age of Kings: Henry VI Part 2: 10: The Fall of a Protector

The Pageant of English History by William Shakespeare.
A second showing of 10: The Fall of a Protector
After Henry V's death, his French conquests were soon lost. His brothers, Bedford and Gloucester, were appointed Protectors of the baby Henry VI. The leaderless nobles revived their old quarrels, siding with Lancaster or York and choosing red or white roses as their emblems. In France, Joan of Arc defeated the English but was captured and burned as a witch. After the conclusion of a shoddy peace, Suffolk arranged the King's marriage to Margaret of Anjou, intending to become her lover and so rule England.

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.
