Aside from the propaganda and obvious inaccuracies, the writing and acting is shite. How did this get to series 7?

I wonder if any of the Coronation Street, East Enders or Byker Grove eps will surface one day.

Pirate radio in soaps is usually terribly researched and presented, I remember The Bill had an episode in which at one point they stated that the pirates were using 'the same channels as the emergency services' !!!! Also in Eastenders I remember two numpties discussing their pirate 'transmitter' and sitting there with it on the table looking suspiciously like a Maxcom 4E CB radio!!

I just Googled it and I'm sure I've seen it before but it's more of a low-rise around those ways so not so noticeable lol.

I remember watching that.. One deck wizards... And why would you pull up to a block to listen to a pirate.. Mind you broadcasting with a TV yagi wouldn't get ya far, would it? And remember the corrie one as well..The mcdonald brothers had a transmitter int arches..Jim mcdonald got it for them and used a sharp cassette radio as the audio source...
