|Source of story
||An original screenplay – loosely based on the Radio Caroline story
||In the days when the BBC was a strait laced, uptight broadcasting station that hated popular music, a number of pirate stations were set up, some on small ships anchored in the North Sea. Over time the government took them on, changing the law to shut then down. This is the story of one of them.
||Mainly the story of the interaction between the DJs with lots of bad language and jokes about sex, but not even any implied sex.
||You’d probably have to lived through the real events to enjoy this, and the fact that these stations changed the broadcasting world in UK would be the subject of a documentary, not a comedy.
