This DVD features the 60’s most successful Offshore Radio Station:- Radio London, and is about 30mins long. The silent version of this film—on VHS Tape, was discovered in a suitcase many years ago.

The movie, presumably, originally filmed on Cine 8, has been digitally cleaned, and has had a number of photographs, narration and authentic 60’s music soundtrack added.

The film was taken around 1966, and you will see tender arrivals and departures, shots in the studio, DJ’s on deck, and an insight into what life was like at sea on board the Radio Ship—Galaxy.

You’ll also see a short clip of the Cheeta 2, the ship that came to Radio Caroline’s aid, when their ship, the ‘MI AMIGO’ went aground off Frinton on Sea in January 1966.

Also included is another short clip of the “Laissez Faire” - the ship from which “Swinging Radio England” and “Britain Radio” broadcast, and shows DJ Ron O’Quinn in the Radio England Studio.

There is also a 5 minute promotional film taken around the time of Big L’s closure in 1967, Featuring Big L DJ’s John Peel, Mark Roman, Willie Walker, and Paul Kaye.
