: Colossus

The Ship that Lost a Fortune Part 1: Expectation
Dr Ann Birchall ' Director of tto Colossus Excavation' gives a personal commentary on a new version of the original film to set the scene for this remarkable story that began two and a half thousand years ago, and takes us from the potter's wheel of ancient Greece, through shipwreck in Nelson's day, to the present and the treacherous waters of the Western Approaches to the English Channel.
In 1798 HMS Colossus, returning home from Nelson's fleet in the Mediterranean, foundered off the Scilly Isles. As she sank she took with her part of Sir William Hamil ton's second collection of ancient Greek vases. Dr Birchall looks back at 1975 and shows how a group of divers found the wreck and its unique cargo. For Dr Birchall it was just the beginning.

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.
