Justin Welby interview
Justin Welby and his wife were interviewed at the Trent Vineyard Church in Nottingham on Sunday. The church website has this description
John Mumford talks to Archbishop of Canterbury Elect, Justin Welby, and his wife Caroline. They discuss their faith, the ‘journey to Canterbury’, and their hope for the Church.
and there are links to audio and video of the hour-long interview here.
Ed Thornton reports on the interview for the Church Times as Welby told CNC: ‘appointing me would be absurd’.

Just another instance of the endemic humility of the man. Bless him, may he help the Church of England to come into the 21st century in league with her more liberal counterparts in the Anglican Communion
Yes, I am sure his humility led him to tell this.
But, he will, I am afraid, find that such honesty will give hostage to fortune.
I can already see quotes, from the usual subjects, in a year (maybe less!) giving unqualified support to his view that the appointment was absurd.
Since I am hearing-impaired, and I found the sound quality of the video and audio very poor, I did not listen to or watch the entire interview. I'd like to know if there is a link to a transcript.
June, I have made enquiry of Trent Vineyard and will report the result.
I can no longer find the interview. Has it disappeared from the Web?
It's still there, Lionel, at the moment it is the top item in the middle column....
You're not going mad, Lionel: for a time last night it was going straight form Parables 1 to Parables 2: I know, was seeking it out for my mother.
