Latest bellringing news – radio and TV
BBC Look North reported on the Opening Ceremony in their late night bulletin. Their coverage included Gary Verity’s reference to ringers in his hosts speech. In this news piece, BBC camera crew had filmed the Leeds Minster band ringing at the designated welcoming time of 8.20pm on the 3rd of July.
BBC Radio York. Earlier in the day, Martin Davies (Ringing Master of Ripon Cathedral) was interviewed on the Elly Fiorentini drive time show. Martin’s interview starts at around 1:35:30 on the player.
And of course, bellringing at Cawthorne, Masham, Chapel Allerton and Ossett was seen by over 10,000 people in the Opening Ceremony itself at the Leeds FD Arena. In the actual broadcast, a number of sections had to be reduced and bellringing was not therefore in the final broadcast on the evening. However, we will enquire as to whether, how and where the whole ceremony film may be shared.
