The programme written and produced by FELIX FELTON
This programme is entirely reconstructed from original documents. The music chosen is all from the fourth Symphony of Tchaikovsky. The battle itself is expressed musically.
The story begins at the accession of James II, with the plots in Holland made by Lord Grey, Ferguson, and others against him. The character of Monmouth is interpreted as that of a young man persuaded to lead the rebellion by unscrupulous political racketeers. It ends with the fate of the Puritan rebels who awaited the coming of Judge Jeffreys in the prisons of the west, but the emotions aroused during this rebellion came into force again later on, in the invasion of the Prince of Orange.
The whole campaign is full of exciting episodes.

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.
