Premiering on Comcast On Demand today is Pirate Radio, a comedy from Love Actually director Richard Curtis about 1960s Britain and how rock rebels dealt with the BBC’s denial of airtime to the musical revolution. Bill Nighy and his crew of pothead DJs (including American profanity enthusiast calling himself The Count [Philip Seymour Hoffman]) set up a pirate radio operation on a boat out of the government’s jurisdiction, much to the chagrin of conservative government official Dormandy (Kenneth Branagh). The film’s title has been Americanized for some reason from the British title The Boat That Rocked.
