Department for Culture, Media and Sport did not have the information requested.

Dear Department for Culture, Media and Sport,

I am researching broadcasting history and looking for information held on the offshore "pirate" radio stations Radio Caroline and Radio Laser 558/576 during the 1980's. This information would have been held by the Dept' of Trade and Industry at that time.
There are no records held by the UK National Archives from this period.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Chris Edwards
