I Had a Little Nut Tret by LOUIS BATTYE (11) Editor WYN KNOWLES
and as in The Lonely Conscience by LYDIA RAGOSIN
When Charles II was restored to the throne of England, his brother's conversion to Catholicism and his own lack of a legitimate heir prompted his ambitious bastard son, Monmouth, and his Protestant supporters to rebel against the succession. James's inability to compromise over his new faith, and Charles's to believe in his son's treachery, provide the background to this sympathetic portrait of the last of the Stuart kings.

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.
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.
