Network21 TV – London’s Pirate TV

Claiming to be London’s 1st and only pirate tv station, broadcast through the summer of 1986, Network21  had a strong avant-garde/underground flavour – Burroughs, Gysin, Warhol, Galas, Jarman – and picture quality was certainly watchable though not to commercial broadcast standards.  The main problem with the programmes was the sound quality, but the creators stuck to their original intention of broadcasting material which they would like to see but did not appear on the four UK channels.

Complete programme listings can be found on the Network21 website
