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 Boasting exclusive access to a cache of some 3000 historical documents, including examples written by Philip himself, absorbing three-part series ARMADA – THE UNTOLD STORY (Monday 22nd to Wednesday 24th, 7.30pm) examines the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.
