Here's another clip from the same source, with Joe getting the first 45 or so seconds:

I'm curious what Portobello Pirate TV was. Some type of local access thing? Don't know how works in the UK, but I'd love to hear the full scoop on that.

I can't really help with much info about Portobello Pirate TV other than I believe that the Welsh guy interviewing Joe Ray 'Roughler' Jones was behind the TV channel. Below are a couple of links with some info about him. The first contains a cool Joe related anecdote and the second a song that Joe produced for him.

Thanks for that. So, 1988 not 1990?

You're welcome. Yeah, I mean, that's what the guy's got in the heading, and in the description copy -- so I'm assuming he has the date right, though you can't always, of course.

Anyway, it's a nifty little clip, in light of the subject matter, especially. Judging by what the guy's got posted on his YT page, Portobello Pirate TV did some interesting things. Thanks for the links, I'm probably gonna do a bit more digging myself, to see what else, if anything, I can find out.

Portobello People's TV, who uploaded that short clip I mentioned, just published the same video in the link you provided.
