1. Days left until publication announcement: 35
2. Please note that this Blog is about the work of three people: 'The Trio'.
During the time that part of this work has focused upon the development of broadcasting and its attachment to offshore radio and television, and its further concentration upon researching and then exposing the actual and factual background of Radio Caroline, some have turned the name of 'Radio Caroline' into a quasi-religion and the deceased person of Ronan O'Rahilly into its god-like leader who they worship. Some of these fringe cult members call themselves anoraks (after a type of clothing worn in inclement conditions.)
This work grew over many years from asking questions about British governmental control of broadcasting into continuing research investigating the origins of authority controlling the lives of people living in the British Isles, and the subsequent spin-off nation created by some of their number who had fled to North America to escape British religious and political tyranny. That is still the main story that we are still following.
Long before the nonsense of 'Black Lives Matter'; 'Counter-Culture' and the so-called 'Critical Race Theory' (teaching race-hatred), we were on the side of Dr. Martin Luther King (see the 4FWS logo to the right), who was trying to ensure that the founding documents of the United States of America applied to each and every person who lived in the USA. The last thing he wanted was for anyone to be judged by the color of their skin. We not only stood on that same platform of idealism, but in the Nineteen Eighties we took that issue into a court of law. We lost, not on merit, but by politic, so we began writing and producing both radio and television programs about that issue, while still addressing matters relating to broadcasting.
The person on our team who was front and center of this educational 'war' with those who were even then trying to warp the factual record of the past, was Genie Baskir. Yet the so-called 'anoraks' ignore the part that Genie Baskir has played in order to glorify their icon, the fraudster Ronan O'Rahilly whose legacy is founded upon lies and deceit.
Here is a composite illustration from the Nineteen Eighties back when the Intranet was being pioneered by the General Electric Company, and the Fort Worth Star Telegram daily newspaper in Fort Worth, Texas. It was a time when pictures on home computer screens were in the future, and the Internet was still in its experimental stages.
So if you want to know how all of this is going to play out, just be patient because in 35 more days we will have an announcement about a book called 'Caroline ....the girl who never was - the Alan Bednall Story Extrapolated', and it will explain in an easy-to-read, step-by-step format, what this project is all about, and why it is mainly the work of three people - not one person.
