Best I've found so far.

These lectures commemorating the 400th year of the printing of the King James Bible are the best I have found on the subject to date. The lecturers are indeed well versed in their subject and present themselves rather well while the lectures are both informative and enlightening. One cannot overestimate their value if you’re looking to expand your knowledge about the subject. Pauline Croft’s lecture is, I think, the better of those here and this was not an easy decision to make as I think they have all done very well.

I cannot seem to get accustomed to reading any other version of the Bible. I love the KJV!
