Synopsis:
Following a young London DJ (David Beames) on the road to Bristol to investigate the mysterious death of his brother, 'Radio On' offers a unique, compelling and even mythic vision of a late 1970s England, stalled between failed hopes of cultural and social change and the imminent upheavals of Thatcherism. Stunningly photographed in luminous monochrome by Martin Schäfer, and driven by a startling new wave soundtrack - and early screen performance by Sting - 'Radio On' is ripe for rediscovery.
