This new three-part documentary series, presented by Dan Snow, looks at the famous sinking of the Spanish Armada at the hands of the English back in 1588. It takes information from recently recovered documents as well as using dramatic reconstructions to tell the story, with Anita Dobson in the role of Queen Elizabeth. Yes, the same Anita Dobson who played Angie Watts on EastEnders. The documentary reveals how tensions between England and Spain were fuelled by religion, piracy and Elizabeth I's rejection of King Philip II of Spain as a suitor 30 years earlier.
