This superb historical drama tells the story of William Tyndale and his fight to provide the Bible in English for the common man.
But this was illegal and he fled to Europe pursued by agents of king Henry VIII. Nevertheless, his translation was mass-produced on the newly invented printing presses and smuggled into England. Eventually, betrayed by a friend, he was arrested, tried and executed. His eloquent translation was a priceless gift to all English speaking peoples and a fitting memorial to his courage and genius.

A Grenville production with Channel Four, directed by Tony Tew.
