The final episode of Christopher Lee 's political drama. Producer Neil Cargill
Two linked plays by C M Williams spanning 500 years of history. In 1492 a ship called the Santa Maria sailed from the old world to the new. These linked plays are poignant laments on the cargo of destruction and disappointment which she carried back, and the price of survival for those who rode in her.

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.
