The Story of the 1985 Siege of Laser 558 & Radio Caroline
When Laser 558 went on the air in 1984 an audience of several million soon grew over a short period of a few months, resulting in dwindling audience figures for Independent Local Radio (ILR) stations in London and the South East of the UK.
Collectively, the stations campaigned for something to be done and together with the Independent Broadcasting Authority (IBA), they funded the Department of Trade and Industry to instigate a blockade and surveillance of the offshore stations in order to starve them off the air by restricting supply vessels and prosecuting individuals who assisted Laser or Caroline.
The film crew visited both Laser 558 and Radio Caroline during the siege to make this report, and also visited a Department of Trade & Industry (DTI) press conference to obtain the reasons behind the blockade given by leading DTI officials.
Also including footage of the Laser 558 ship MV Communicator as she arrives in Harwich harbour. Featured are Johnny Lewis, Peter Philips, Charlie Wolf, Chris Carson, Tommy Rivers and Jonell.
Narrated by Ray Anderson.
