Adam Nicolson examines the creation of the influential text, which has shaped language, culture and society around the world. Scholars from Cambridge, Oxford and London worked on the version for a king who hoped to unite a country torn by religious factions. The programme delves into recently discovered manuscripts that reveal the translation process and asks why the result has had such a lasting legacy.
