A History of the Crusades
A series of eight programmes presented by Malcolm Billings 7: Thirteenth-century Acre was not only the capital of the Kingdom of Jerusalem, but was also reputed to be the richest and wickedest city in the world. In 1291 it was there that the crusaders made their last defence of the Holy Land before their final defeat by the 'Muslims. Today, Acre is a sleepy fishing port in the north of Israel, but recent archaeological discoveries have begun to reveal Acre's medieval past and why it played such a crucial role in the fortunes of the crusaders.

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.
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.
