Tilbury Skinheads

A 1980 BBC Radio documentary that looks at a Sun newspaper shock horror probe on the Tilbury skinheads, Aggro Britain. It details how the Sun put together and set up a sensationlist report, what a suprise! The documentary also looks at the impact of the Sun spread and talks to the people whose words were twisted by the Sun, as well as Tilbury locals.
The final song is by Tilbury band Angela Rippon’s Bum.

Seething Wells also took umbrage at the Sun’s sensationalising.
