Publisher's Summary

To mark the 400th anniversary of this ‘noblest monument of English prose’, James Naughtie tells the story of how and why James I (VI of Scotland), commissioned a new translation of The Bible. In the first of three programmes, James Naughtie visits Hampton Court Palace and tells how the Bible emerged from a conference there in 1604, even though it was not on the original agenda. The result is an illuminating and enjoyable overview of the origins of what is still the most widely published text in the English language.
