Thanks, John Andrews, for the article about Robin McNeill and his book
Would anyone know whether this talk will be broadcast on BookTV? This is
part of C-Span, the most interesting part IMHO, and only on TV so far as
I know on weekends.
I recently learned that many of these broadcasts are also available as
web casts. I would guess from the one-hour plus version of one aired
last Sunday that the web-casts are uncut.
This talk is by Adam Nicholson, author of _God's Secretaries: The Making
of the King James Bible_. While watching I felt that Mr. N. achieves
something quite remarkable: he addresses a general audience on a special
subject without patronizing the one or dumbing down the other. He
emphasizes how the KJV has affected language, making many comparisons
and contrasts with Shakespeare, Milton and other poets.
One of the best yet on this substantial program. The URL:
