Pirate radio doc including sea fort trip

http://www.boingboing.net/2010/03/26/pirate-radio-documen.html?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter

Matt "Pirate's Dilemma" Mason teamed up with VICE/Palladium to shoot a short documentary on the current state of pirate radio in London (with an excursion to an old sea fort). Lots of climbing on roofs, setting up bootleg electronics in parking garages, loud music, and running away from radio cops. Nice work.
