I have just got a copy of the boat that rocked dvd. I was not sure that the film would be that marvellous, but had to have a copy of it for my anorak library. I was lucky to get a sealed new copy from Play.com. I found the first ten to fifteen minutes, especially the bits where the deejays are talking on the ship rather muddling. I have since found that a bit later on in the film a real fun story starts, then some fantasy almost musical style routines happen. Some lovely shots of the Radio Rock Ship, so much like the Ross Revenge. I have only watched about 45 minutes of the film so far, I will come back with a further review when I have a chance to see some more. I normally view films in small sections.
Still no sound from Big L on 1395. Mind you Isle of Man Broadcasting have not issued a peep at all, and I have some shares in that concern.
Interesting to note that Brian Matthew has a show on The Voice of Peace. His show on a Saturday on Radio 2 called Sounds of the Sixties is a show not to be missed.
