What are you doing to celebrate the King James Version's 400th birthday? The Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams reflected on this event in his New Year's Message:
When I clicked through to the ABC's website, I saw a stern picture of the ABC on BBC2 with the words "Not available in your area" running across the middle of his face. Is there something we should know?

Let's celebrate Tyndale, who was martyred for his work. Somewhat Latinated, it survives in the Authorized Version.

What did I do to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the KJV? I posted and linked on my blog to the splendid BBC4 series of 3 broadcasts titled, "The Story of the King James Bible".
Only 6 days left to listen.

Steve, depending on where you live and because of copyright issues the BBC may or may not be available in a particular person's nation.

Thanks! A big surprise tied into the 400th anniversary of the 1611 King James Version Bible:
Two scholars have compiled the first worldwide census of extant copies of the original first printing of the 1611 King James Version (sometimes referred to as the "He" Bible). For decades, authorities from the British Museum, et al., have estimated that “around 50 copies” of that first printing still exist. The real number is quite different.
