For the benefit of those who haven't watched it: it starts right out with an ironic choice--if the sound corresponds to the video, and the subsequent talk, it appears CBS used a recording of the carillon at Washington Cathedral as the opening sounds. Which carillon is the handiwork of Taylor's, not Whitechapel, of course. I don't think I heard any change ringing throughout the whole piece.
