Mashing up old pubic information films into new music is the hobby of geography teacher J. Willgoose, Esq.
He’s one half of Public Service Broadcasting – a guitar and drums outfit that’s been playing live venues since 2009.
PSB have been championed by Tom Robinson on BBC 6 Music for the way they combine old public information films with new music.
This unusual combination of sound and vision is played out on stage with the help of a vintage TV.
In November 2011 I worked with Owain Rich to produce this video of their performance. Steve Hillman mixed the sound while Owain and I collaborated on the lighting and direction.
