Reproducing Information from the Archive

 

All recordings are copyright ©SRLM. The recordings on this site are for private listening only and copying, broadcasting or reproduction is prohibited.  While we welcome students' and researchers' interest in the archive, no extracts from the recordings or their summaries may be used for commercial purposes or public performance without prior authorisation.  Should you wish to do so, please email archives@somerset.gov.uk.

 

Photographs

We have attempted to acknowledge copyright wherever possible. We apologise if we have wrongly credited a photograph. Please contact us immediately with any queries regarding images.

Transcripts

 

The summaries available on this website are a guide to the full contents of the recordings.  Please note that some are given in greater detail than others. Although they are as accurate as possible, they are working documents and it is important that they are viewed as a complement to the audio archive, not a substitute.  The views expressed are those of the contributors.

 

Producing the transcripts has been an enormous task for the project volunteers, to whom we are very grateful.  If you have any comments or queries, please email archives@somerset.gov.uk.
