Wycliffe and the Lollards - In Our Time Melvyn Bragg

Not a classic, but worth half an hour of your time. It is mainly about Wycliffe rather than the Lollards to be honest.  How often do you have this experience.  There is an historical figure about which you know one solitary fact.  You find out more, and it turns out the one thing you thought you knew is wrong. 

So in my case, the only thing I knew about this guy was that he translated the Bible into English.  Except he didn't.  If you want to know more you'll have to tune in to Melvyn and a couple of not all that animated experts on the subject.
