Dear Mr Callow

 

TfL Ref: FOI-1094-1415

 

Thank you for your email received by us on 6 October 2014 asking for
information about audio recordings.

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. I can
confirm we do hold the information you require.

 

Please see attached the announcements used at London Underground stations,
however please note that sometimes it will be necessary for staff to make
their own announcements which will not be featured in the attached for
various reasons.

 

A CD of the iBus and London Overground recordings will be sent to you when
you provide a postal address. The iBus announcements are recorded as
fragments. As a result, some announcements would not feature in full as
the full announcement would just be made up of two or more fragments that
have already been recorded. The nature of the way they were originally
recorded for the iBus rollout, was over a period of two years in 20
sessions. Numerous CDs and folders were set up in this process and so
unfortunately they are not all held centrally. Some of the current iBus
recordings may be made up of fragments that are no longer used.

 

Please note that while access to this material will be provided to you
under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, you are not granted any rights
to any of the intellectual property that exists in it or granted any
permission to make secondary uses of it.

 

TfL owns all intellectual property (including, without limitation,
copyright) in the material supplied and will defend such rights.

 

If you wish to make any secondary use of the material provided, you must
first obtain the consent of TfL (which may be withheld) and, if consent is
granted, a fee may be charged, in accordance with the terms of the Reuse
of Public Sector Information Regulations 2005

 

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable
to access it for some reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to
appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would
like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.

 

Yours sincerely
