Accent mutation


Hello hello there, chaps. I'm alone in the office, because it's just before six and I thought I'd use the opportunity to indulge myself and find out how much my accent has mutated by videoing myself speaking normally, as I am now, and then by imitating the voice of the announcer at Kings Cross who lets you know when your train is leaving and where from. So, here goes.

The next train to depart from Platform 0 will be the 17:44 First Capital Connect service to Kings Lynn via Cambridge, calling at Royston, Cambridge, Waterbeach, Ely, Littleport, Downham Market, Watlington and Kings Lynn. Will customers intending to travel on this service please join the train now, as it is ready to leave.
