We were commissioned by the British Council, who with the King James Bible Trust were celebrating the 400th anniversary of 'The King James Bible' and its impact on the English Language. Robert Cecil, 1st Earl of Salisbury was one of the Privy Councillors who received a copy of the bible from King James and it is the only original Privy Council one to survive to this day. This is its story and the connection to Hatfield House, which also celebrates 400 years.
Filmed in SD, with 1 camera and using just a basic tripod dolly for the tracking shots. Everything was kept as simple as possible with minimal kit.
Our thanks and appreciation to our client, the British Council, Hatfield House and the Marquess of Salisbury.
