Mark Kermode introduces Radio On 2016

2 mins United Kingdom Director. Nick Freand Jones

Christopher Petit's 1979 film Radio On was a British attempt to emulate the stylish black-and-white 'road movies' of Wim Wenders, produced with many of the German director's associates. Mark Kermode pays tribute to this hip British debut with its unutterably cool krautrock soundtrack.
