Stephen Johnson explores the work with the help of a recording made by the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Karel Ancerl.

On the eve of the dissolution of the monasteries, Henry VIII commissioned the humanist scholar John Leland to search through the libraries of all the religious houses of his kingdom and catalogue their literary treasures.

Excerpts from Leland's writings and travel notes are read by Jeremy Northam.
