1961-1964. Reg and Dorothy move to Clifton Hall near Rugby and with them come an entourage of young musicians and singers. The press ask to visit and write (variously) about the 'School of Rock'.

To own a pirate radio station. With Screaming Lord Sutch, he started Radio Sutch on abandoned wartime forts in the Thames Estuary. After a summer of fun, Reg changed the name to Radio City. A rival wanted the station and took it with force. Two days later, he shot Reg. Dorothy is determined to continue and her life is threatened.
