Dr Guido Latré has kindly sent the editor details of this exciting new development which we hope to report more fully in the next issue of the Journal and on our website:-

‘Phil Cairney of the BBC and two vans with a BBC crew arrived in Antwerp on 22 November and stayed for four days to shoot a docudrama on Tyndale, half of which will consist of scenes played by very good actors, and the other half of interviews and images of a more scholarly nature. The backdrop will be Antwerp, Oxford and a few other locations.

I have the privilege of being among those who will be interviewed. I am also expected to stand among the exhibits of “Tyndale’s Testament” and comment on the general scene of bible translation activities in Antwerp.’

This programme forms part of a series of three hour long documentaries on the subject of heretics and will be shown on BBC2 in the third week of February. The scriptwriter is Peter Ackroyd. Ian Glen will play William Tyndale and James Fox Thomas More.
