Not outside the UK, you can't. Parochial b----y BBC.

The irony is almost beyond belief, it seems as though the equivalent of Henry VIII is running the BBC.

A documentary about the father of written English, is censored to a world that uses English as a global language!

By an organization paid for by the British people, in the hope that justice will not just be done, but be seen to be done.

A remarkable human being, Tyndale, who probably did more to make our tiny island the world power that it became, must be kept a secret to the rest of the world?

Translating our holy book into the common tongue, meant our people had a motivation to learn to read and write.

Maybe in the case of the BBC, the alcoholics are in charge of the brewery.

"Translating our holy book into the common tongue, meant our people had a motivation to learn to read and write....."

...and ask questions about some of the contradictions and blunders/errors in our Holy Book.
It was the awkward questions the church feared so much,
that is why they fought against getting the Bible put into English.

Prism is God. Well according to the Guardian it is.

Warren you'll find all sorts in The Guardian - some quite good and some not - but at least it's not at the level of a comic.

The answer to the question which Nick posed originally is I am going in that direction as I get older.

As an example of on awkward question, how about this one?
"When Adam delved and Eve span, who was then the gentleman?"

As 1066 And All That puts it:-
"The answer was of course Adam but the mystics of the church wanted to conceal this dangerous knowledge."
