Pirate BBC Essex re-launches

Back by popular demand, Pirate BBC Essex returns to the airwaves this Easter (10-13 April) for a four-day broadcast. The BBC Essex team will be on board the LV18 which will be moored in Harwich.

Legendary DJs Tony Blackburn and Johnnie Walker are just two of the original sixties offshore presenters who will be joining them.

"In 2007 we told listeners it could be the last time for Pirate BBC Essex," said BBC Essex Managing Editor Gerald Main. "Ever since, fans from Essex and across the world have been asking us to do it one more time. We've been swayed by their wishes and their ship is literally coming in."

The vessel that hosts the four-day broadcast is a star in its own right as it is featured in the new film The Boat That Rocked, written and directed by Richard Curtis and starring Bill Nighy, Rhys Ifans and Kenneth Branagh.
