British English audio Bible?

Do any readers of this blog know of an audio recording of a modern English Bible translation made by British English speakers? A friend of mine is looking for one to listen to on long road journeys - as a download or as a purchasable product.

I know about Scourby's reading of KJV. I have also seen references to a British English reading, of NASB I think, by Jack Bradley, but the link they give is dead.

If you know of anything, please let me know by replying to this posting or by e-mail to me: peter AT qaya DOT org.

I have been told by e-mail of David Field's reading of the World English Bible - not my own favourite version, from the little I know about it, but my friend might like it. I would still like to know of any others.

Not (yet - we are doing a chapter a day, and the Bible in a year) the whole Bible, and not actually British (though some readers are, and the others are mainly Commonwealth) but do try PodBible a community reading of the CEV by some 300 random volunteers from Auckland NZ.

Go to the Podcast page for a list of the books with at that have been "done" so far. The whole Bible was recorded over one long weekend, but we have not cleaned it all up yet...

Thank you, Tim. This is certainly of interest, and I guess my friend would prefer New Zealand to American voices.

I heard by e-mail off blog, and have confirmed for myself, that the audio recording of HCSB is read by a British actor - although (from the sample I listened to) the background music and the pronunciation of "Isaiah" give a certain American flavo(u)r. This costs nearly $100 US for the whole Bible, which lends a certain attractiveness to the podcast and to David Field's reading.
