On August 7, 1657, Admiral Blake died on board the St. George as she was entering Plymouth Sound after Blake's victory over the Spaniards at Santa Cruz. Second only to Nelson in our Naval history, Blake, by his victories over Tromp and de Ruyter, made England ' Mistress of the Seas '. As a soldier, Blake achieved fame as the defender of Lyme and Taunton in the Civil War. He was born at Bridgwater, Somerset, in 1598, and tomorrow, August 7, is the anniversary of his death.
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.
