Who exactly is "Anita" who is one of the two voices of the Jubilee Line 1996 Stock automated announcements.

Transport for London Nid oedd gan y wybodaeth y gofynnwyd amdani.

Dear Transport for London,

I would like to know who exactly "Anita" is? Do you have her full name and what voice over company she worked for? Any information would be appreciated?

If you are not already aware "Anita" is one of your two voice over artists that voice the Jubilee Line 1996 stock train automated announcements (with Celia Drummond being the other one) but her real identity seems to be not very well known.

This same person "Anita" also voices all of the English language automated announcements on the Nuremberg U Bahn in Germany too. So she is clearly a professional voice over artist who is probably also used in other places too.

With all of your other voice over artists we know their full names and who they are but "Anita" is the only one who nobody knows anything about which seems strange. So i would be interested to know who exactly she is. As you would have had to hire her in order to record all of these announcements (i presume back in 1996 or around that time) i think you should know who she is. So you will probably have some documents with this information somewhere.

Thank you and i look forward to your reply and any information that you have.

Yours faithfully,

Jason Evans
