On-board announcements for London Overground and certain London Underground lines (Jubilee, Northern and Piccadilly)

Elliott made this Freedom of Information request to Transport for London

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was successful.

Dear Transport for London,

I am looking to make a request to you today, relating to the on-board Announcements of London Overground, Jubilee Line, Northern Line and Piccadilly Line announcements, requesting a copy of these on an Audio CD or digital download strictly for my personal use only.

These announcements are produced by Ketech (previously known as Ditra) who also produce the London Overground ones (on-board announcements and station announcements) that you often send out. They are not produced by Global Services Limited which means that the commercial interest exception does not apply.

I have no intent to, and will not, redistribute or use these announcements without the permission from Transport for London.

I look forward to your response.

Yours faithfully,

Elliott Mozley

Dear Elliott

 

Our ref: FOI-3386-1819/GH

 

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 11
March 2019 asking for announcement recordings.

 

Your request has been considered under the requirements of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 and our information access policy. I can confirm that
we do hold the information you require.

 

A CD containing the Jubilee, Northern and Piccadilly line announcements
has been sent to you by post. The Northern line audio files contain
historical as well as current announcements. You will note the Piccadilly
line announcements are supplied as PCC files which may need specialist
software to play them. This format is the only version we currently have
available.

 

Please also note that while the Jubilee and Piccadilly announcements are
recorded as full statements specifically for each station, Northern line
announcements are recorded as segmented phrases joined into full sentences
by the train management system (TMS).

 

While access to these announcements has been 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 enclosed 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
