New Article in Best of British (March 2022)


I'm delighted to reveal that my first ever published article features in the March issue of Best of British. The subject of the article, titled Anarchy Over the Airwave, is one which is a particular favourite of mine: the history of pirate television in the UK.

From the very early days of City TV in the 1960s (which never got on the air) through to Caroline TV in the 1970s (which, again, never got on the air) and onto the glory days of the 1980s when several stations managed to, finally, start making illegal broadcasts, it's all here.

The magazine is currently available in branches of WHSmiths and details of local stockists can be found at

And if you're interested in reading more about pirate television, I conducted a fascinating interview with one of the founders of NeTWork 21 in issue three of the Curious British Telly fanzine.
