Before the interweb ‘zines were how the young people shared information and found out about bands, music, poetry.
These were made before people had computers and were done by really cutting and pasting. Letraset letters were popular too.HAN
This documentary is from 1980 and looks at a small town ‘zine and the people around it. Open Door programmes were made by the BBC’s Community Programme’s Unit and were an attempt to get people’s unedited views and ideas on air.
One of the skinheads talking is Matty Roberts who went on to sing with anti-fascist punk band Blaggers ITA.
