All are spoken word samples which we have taken from various archive radio and TV broadcasts. A couple are anonymous, as in we don't know the identity of the person speaking - these are respectively a "1940s" BBC announcer talking about london buses and an unknown female chef giving a recipe for smoked haddock soup.
However a couple feature two very well known current TV presenters, whose voices would be instantly recognisable to most people.
So the question is, do we need to gain permission from said people before putting our music out commercially? Whilst obviously we know that sampling recorded music needs permission, we haven't been able to find out if the same applies to spoken word samples.
Any help much appreciated!
