The Last Pirates – BBC4 – Rodney P

Posted on September 29, 2017 at 9:45 am

Don’t miss our very own rapper Rodney P present ‘The Last Pirates – Britain’s Rebel DJs’ tonight, 29th Sept at 9pm on BBC4.
In the 1980s a new generation of pirate radio stations exploded on to Britain’s FM airwaves. Unlike their seafaring swinging 60s forerunners, these pirates broadcast from London’s estates and tower blocks to create a platform for black music in an era when it was shut out by legal radio and ignored by the mainstream music industry.

Presented by Rodney P, whose own career as a rapper would not have been possible without the lifeblood of pirate radio airplay, this film also presents an alternative history of Britain in the 1980s – a time of entrepreneurialism and social upheaval – with archive and music that celebrates a very different side of Thatcher’s Britain.

Featuring interviews with key DJs, station owners and DTI enforcers – as well as some of the engineers who were the secret weapon in the pirate arsenal – this is the untold story of how Britain’s greatest generation of Pirate radio broadcasters changed the soundtrack of modern Britain – forever.
