London Pirate Frequencies

Vice & VBS.TV collaborate with Palladium Boots to launch new urban exploration series, Uneven Terrain

The series makes its UK debut with a film investigating the roots of London’s enigmatic Pirate Radio scene

VBS.TV a few weeks ago launched off a new series called, Uneven Terrain, devoted to urban exploration and uncovering the hidden, underground and forgotten corners of the world’s leading metropolises.
The series has been inspired by iconic footwear brand Palladium Boots; initially a tire manufacturer, Palladium Boots combined their rubber expertise with canvas and crafted an iconic and durable boot that was worn by the French Foreign Legion. Sixty years later, the brand continues to symbolise adventure, and is now traveling the globe, investigating the cities we live in and places around us.

The series comes to the UK with an exploration into the world of Pirate Radio, a phenomenon born out of British sea forts in the '60s. This episode follows the team as they sail to the mouth of the Thames to find the forts to see where it all began, meeting the pioneers of pirate radio who defined an era by playing the music London wanted to hear.

Loving bntl like a fat kid loves cake.
