Thirty Years in 30 Minutes

At a time when radio, especially international radio, is more concerned with closedowns rather than sign-ons, it reminded me of a special documentary about offshore radio. Actually, I thought I'd lost it. Turned out I was looking in the wrong folder in an audio archive. This programme was put together to capture a different set of stories about offshore broadcasting from the North Sea in the period 1964-1967. Thanks to Hans Knot and Andy Sennitt who help us put together this era, which one of the most important stages in the development of European commercial Radio.

Where's the show? It's here. Enjoy. Then tell us what you think.
