Recording Native Speakers of English

Notice: Dear linguists,

I'm doing a research on Prosody/Intonation perception in ESL. One part of my research requires recording some micro-dialogues by native speakers of English (both male and female, preferably RP/near RP/ Estuary English speakers). I would appreciate it if you could help me in this, either by recording or giving a reference to somebody who could record it.

Thank you.
