@campbell alas, that doesn't surprise me. I don't listen to the Archers, but I was a teenager in 1980snand could see the media / normal society conflated the Greenham Common protest with the wider scene of unlicensed festivals

the way both were clamped down on was inexcusable, and completely counterproductive (particularly the beanfield incident, IMO this didn't stop alternative culture one bit but simply made it more nihilstic and drug fuelled (rather than the positive campaigns of Greenham)
