I wasn't approached. If they tell the whole story of the 80s it could be good. BUT if it concentrates on post 85 and the Stitch up where the carrot of licenses was dangled if you went off air but retracted soon after you did,then it may come over as too extreme. As much as some people may not like me saying this I'm going to anyway, up until 1985 the majority of BMS (black music stations) in London were run and predominantly staffed by local males mostly white. After 1985 saw a change towards a influence from people out of the area,many from North Africa. Not a bad thing initially but the emphasis on money and making it became bigger, involvement in things more criminal than unlicensed broadcasting became more prevalent. Essentially the precursor to the bad days of around 2008 when OFCOM investigators wouldn't enter a London tower block site without full police back up. I could go on and maybe one day I will.
