Pirate Radio in Northern UK

Not sure whether this upload is sanctioned to Google Video, but it is the only way people outside the UK can easily access a documentary broadcast Thursday 10th July by ITV 1 Yorkshire from 10:40pm to 11:10pm. Entitled "Is It Worth It?" is looks at the activities of non-licenced radio stations presently broadcasting throughout West Yorkshire, following Leeds station Radio Frequency. These latter-day pirates have fallen foul of media regulator Ofcom for their refusal to end their transmissions. Tony Blackburn, himself a radio pirate in the 1960s, offers an insight into this type of lawbreaking, with comment from a Scarborough MP who set up his own station 40 years ago. If, and when, municipal wifi gets going, I expect these guys to eventually switch technology. Thanks to Mike Barraclough for the spot.
