This programme examines plans for a TV station on Sealand by Roy Bates on one of the disused wartime forts in the Thames Estuary. We talk with offshore radio specialist Hans Knot (still going strong in 2012 - check out the RadioDay website). You might want to skip the frequency changes at the start of the show...those were the days when Radio Netherlands had a major presence on shortwave.
The programme also talks to media researcher Robert Fortner, now teaching in Bulgaria. He'd been commissioned to look into the future of shortwave radios up to 2000 and beyond. Actually, they seem to have got quite a lot of it right.
