: Armada

The Last Crusade
Francis Drake was a pirate: Good Queen Bess took a cut of his profits. This week's three-part series stands back from the 400-year-old story of 'victory' and 'defeat' to look at what really happened in 1588. A number of new discoveries in archives and in the wrecks, together with new analysis by experts in many countries, means that the Armada must now be seen in a different way. In this first film the background to the story is spelled out. (Part 2 on Wednesday at & 10pm)

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
