The oral history archives capture the personal stories and recollections of people who have been involved in significant events, such as the 2012 Olympics; worked with London Transport through interesting times; or just done an interesting job.
These interviews are available for researchers to consult as an historical record; and extracts may feature in Museum displays and exhibitions.
Volunteers from the Friends carry out the interviews and summarise the results in a written record, which can be easily accessed and searched.
