    FULL CU Archbishop poses then speaks.

    SOUND EFFECTS: GOOD SCENES:

    SV Archbishop speaks: "The enthronement of any Bishop, represents that once his entry upon the pastoral care of his diocese, and the welcome of the diocese to him, and for that reason, the clergy and people of the diocese, assemble, so far as they are able, in order to join with him in prayer for blessing upon the diocese in the reign that begins that day."

    CU Archbishop poses then speaks: "But today's ceremony stands for something more than that. In addition to the enthronement in the throne of the Cathedral, there is the second enthronement, in the chair of St. Augustine, representing the entry of its occupant upon his duties as primate of all England."

    GOOD SCENES: SOUND EFFECTS:

    FULL CU Archbishop posing then speaks: "The whole meaning of the Service in all its parts is the dedication both of the man who is installed and of those who join with him in their prayers, to the service of God and I ask that you who have witnessed this reproduction of the scene may also have that thought uppermost in your minds."
