This former survey ship spent three years off the Thames estuary where it was blockaded, spied on, taken over and arrested, suffered countless storms but won millions of listeners.  After being fitted with a more robust aerial in Holland, it was licensed for a 50 kW transmitter. She then had a further 8 years as the home of several radio stations in the Netherlands before a final tour of duty in the Orkney islands in Scotland as The Superstation.

  Renowned cosmologist Carl Sagan describes books as:
a flat object made from a tree with flexible parts on which are imprinted lots of funny squiggles.  Just one glance at it and you are inside the mind of another person, from the far side of the world, or who may have been dead for hundreds of years!
