One I remember was a DJ who used to work there when one was a base for a Pirate radio station .
Was that Mikes rib in the Tv program . ?
This was for the BBC "One Programme" last year.
The main man was Ben Snow (son of Peter)
The Rib was from Windrider at Ramsgate and I was lucky enough to be on the crew that day.
Was a long day but great fun.
We had the BBC crew and a rope access team with us.
Were there all day for about 3 mins of TV time.
Even managed to get my mug on the programme!
We also had Lance Oram from Dover Sea School with us.
He provided the second rib.
This was so the TV crew could get some high speed pass shots or what the termed the "Top Gear" shot!
Have been to the Forts many times now and now matter how busy the water is around them I always get an odd feeling when I am there!!!
All the best
