: Explorers

Driven by ambition and greed; or in quest of prestige and glory; or searching for a unique brand of personal fulfilment; they deserted their homelands to make journeys never before achieved.
9: The Story of Francisco Pizarro who led his Conquistadors into Peru in 1532 and destroyed the Inca civilisation.
Written by IAN THORNE
Introduced by David Attenborough from the Royal Geographical Society, London
All his life he had dreamed of striking it rich. Now in his mid-50s, Francisco Pizarro grabbed at what looked like his last chance to gain power, prestige and gold. There were rumours that on the western side of South America there was a kingdom stuffed with jewels and precious metal. With a small band of armed men Pizarro left Panama to find it. By the time he returned he was one of the richest men in the world. Behind him the Inca Empire of the Sun God lay in ruins.

Producer MICHAEL LATHAM

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
