: The Ceremony

Relayed from York Minster
THE enthronement of Dr. Temple as Archbishop of York will incorporate the procedure which has been associated with this historic ceremony for many hundreds of years.
The ceremony opens with a procession to the Chapter House, where the Mandate of Confirmation of the Enthronement is read. The Dean and Chapter then proceed to the Great West Doors to meet the new Archbishop. A procession of Bishops and Dignitaries of the Province first enters. The doors are then closed, and the Archbishop knocks thereon and petitions for admission. The Dean, having given his consent, the Archbishop advances to the Sanctuary, where he is inducted and installed. He then kneels to receive the Dean's blessing.
The Dean next enthrones the Archbishop in his throne. The Te Deum is sung ; the Archbishop speaks to the Clergy, and gives them his blessing.
The new Archbishop next passes into the Nave to speak to the people, and gives them, too, his blessing.
The Bishop and the Clergy who preceded the Archbishop into the Minster pass in front of him on their way down to the Nave, making an Act of Homage. The Archbishop leaves last, pausing outside the Great West Doors to. give his blessing to the city, diocese, and Province.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
