THIS issue we start our review of ‘Airwave Anarchy’ (don’t you love these slick, journalistic headings?) looking at recent developments in broadcasting. This month we have pieces on Community Radio and Pirate TV, and in the next issue we have Stuart Hood on the possible collapse of mainstream TV in the 80s and a pressure group who are trying to encourage a more feminist perspective in radio.
The other area that we are starting to cover more is the growing animal rights movement. We haven’t had much on this issue before partly because the Beast magazine did it so well. Now that the Beast has folded, Undercurrents seems an obvious platform for Animal Liberationists. The forthcoming Animals Film (see page 19) will undoubtedly focus attention on their arguments. Don’t miss our next action-packed issue . .
And don’t forget to take advantage of our Alternative London book offer . .
Undercurrents was brought to you by: Godfrey Boyle, Peter Culshaw (features), Ingrid Emsden Bill Flatman, Nick Hanna (advertising), Will Hill (cover), Cathy, Stephen Joseph and Antonia Millen (reviews), Rowan, Chris Schuler, Pat Sinclair (news), Dave Smith, Tammy and Lowana Veal (listings). With help from David Ross, Georganne Downs, Dave Elliott and Richard North.
