The Radio Election - BBC Radio Devon
1st January 2011 - Presented by Paul Rowley
This fascinating documentary tells the story of the 1970 UK General Election. This was the first election to be held since the demise of the much loved Pirate radio stations of the 1960's, brought about by Harold Wilson's Labour Party. The Conservatives had made the introduction of commercial radio one of their manifesto policy's and as a result Radio Nordzee International (RNI) joined the campaign to get the Tories elected, even changing the station name to Radio Caroline for a while in order to fight the fight for free radio. The Government responded by using a jamming signal against the transmissions (something they had not even resorted to during the war !!) This is an extremely interesting story and a MUST listen...............
