Famed and acclaimed for his starring role as Admiral Firmus Piett in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, Ken Colley, who was born in Manchester, England, in 1937, knew from a very early age that he was already an actor. It was not until he had completed his mandatory two years with the National Service in the UK, when he was based in Cyprus during the Suez Crisis, that Ken, in his mid-20s, became an Assistant Stage Manager with a weekly repertory company in Bromley, Kent, England. He stayed with them for three months after which he secured his first role in a television series called Ghost Squad. He then went on to join a group of players called ´´The Living Theatre Company´´ where he stayed for the next 18 months. Ken’s breakthrough into cinema came via Michael Crawford who, having witnessed his professional expertise as an actor, recommended that he play the featuring role of a chauffeur in Michael Winner’s film The Jokers. In The Dance of the Seven Veils, the film director, Ken Russell, had asked Ken to play the role of Hitler, but in a Chaplinesque fashion. The film was being made for television and, when completed, was only aired once because of its outrageous content. During his long acting career, which spans five decades, Ken has worked with many famous actors including Laurence Olivier and John Gielgud; he was also involved with Laurence Olivier’s National Theatre company at the Old Vic in London and the Monty Python team. Ken has appeared in countless television productions, plays, and films such as The Music Lovers, The Devils, Mahler, Lisztomania, Les Miserables, Measure for Measure, Pennies from Heaven, The Life of Brian, Firefox, Mussolini: The Untold Story, The Whistleblower, Casanova, The Rainbow, Inspector Morse, and Midsomer Murders, to name but a few.

The 100-Minute Bible is an abridgement of the traditional Bible, which has primarily been written for people who are interested in Christian and spiritual matters but who do not have time to read through a whole traditional Bible. Divided into 50 sections, it starts with the creation and moves though the history of the Jews in Old Testament times, the life and ministry of Jesus Christ, and an outline of issues facing the early Christian church before ending with the Revelation of John. This spoken version takes longer than the title suggests but is beautifully read by the acclaimed TV actor Russell Boulter. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mr Russell Boulter.
