Radio North Sea International / Radio Nordsee International / Radio Noordzee International - known universally as RNI - was one of the most popular, colourful,  and controversial  of the 1970’s offshore radio stations.

With the first test transmissions taking place in January 1970, leading to its (first) official opening in February 1970  the station went on to have a chequered and eventful history before it was finally closed as the result of Dutch legislation in August 1974.

This Special Exhibition focuses on the the period leading up to  the station’s launch in 1970, including its links with Radio London and Radio Veronica.

RNI became one of the most popular of the European offshore stations, and its full history can be found in the Netherlands and Belgium Gallery on Floor 1.
