SPANISH ARMADA ON PBS

Friday, November 19th, 2021

The young Queen Elizabeth’s rejection of Philip II, Emperor of Spain, in 1558 would have dramatic repercussions when, three decades later, her spurned suitor launched a vast invasion force aimed at bringing wayward England back into the Catholic fold. Boasting exclusive access to a cache of some 3000 historical documents, including examples written by Philip himself, absorbing three-part series ARMADA – THE UNTOLD STORY (Monday 22nd to Wednesday 24th, 7.30pm) examines the build-up to what became a momentous clash between monarchs, the course of events and their long-term consequences.

Authoritative documentary, world-class contributors and painstaking reconstructions, with visceral battle scenes enhanced by state-of-the-art CGI, all combine to offer fresh insights into a pivotal moment in the history of Europe, bringing the world of 1588 to vivid life.

What the industry says about US

TROS KOMPAS, MAGAZINE PUBLISHERS, NETHERLANDS

The Global Listings press schedules are very good. Especially as we have very little space in the TV Guide sections, these are still very useful to us. In addition, the Global Listings TV highlights documents and press reports are also a great way for us to make choices of what TV programmes to feature.

TT Spektra, Sweden

We use both the Global Listings press schedules (in Word) and their XML files. The programme descriptions are rather good and not too long, which is helpful. We use their text verbatim and import it direct into our database.
