Life on Air

Bringing a forgotten UK subculture to the screen.

In the late 70s and early 80s, CB Radio changed the lives of thousands of people in the UK

It also fostered a unique, predominantly working class, subculture that is now mostly forgotten. Using a rich mixture of archive, interview and animation, Life on Air explores our universal desire to connect through the rise and fall of the UK’s first social media channel.

Inspired by the book ‘Eyeball Cards – The Art of British CB Radio Culture’ by award-winning photographer David Titlow and author Will Hogan, we hear the stories of three former ‘breakers’: ‘Fruitcake’ aka Jenny, ‘Southerner’ aka Peter, and ‘Sergeant Rock’ aka Alan.
