radio1Radio 1, the BBC's pop music station, began broadcasting on 31 August 1967, designed to replace the various pirate radio stations that had transmitted from waters off the UK since 1964.

The pirates had recently been closed down, when the legal loophole which allowed them to operate was closed with the introduction of the Marine Offences Act on August 15.
