This Friday marks a very special anniversary: it'll be exactly fifty years since the first full broadcasts began from Radio Caroline, a so-called "pirate" radio ship moored a few miles off the Kent coast. Caroline and the other estuary pirates made history - and made legends of their DJs.
We've compiled three special features about the ship and its history - and here's David Johns with the first - a look back at how it all started.
It features archive clips from the BBC's Frank Gillard in 1966, interviews with presenters Keith Skues, Johnny Lewis, Paul Graham and Roger Day, a lovely bit fo archive Tony Benn (then Postmaster-General) and comment from Caroline's current manager, Peter Moore.
