A lecture at Bradford Cathedral by Lord Melvyn Bragg based on his recently published book The Book of Books: The Radical Impact of The King James Bible

Melvyn Bragg reveals the influences the Bible has had throughout the centuries: the story of the 300 year fight to get the Bible into the English language; the grisly deaths of scholars involved in its translation; the Reformation; James of Scotland’s determination; and the extraordinary story of William Tyndale.
