News: Army Hijacks BBC News Broadcast

17th November 1988: British troops storm the BBC Television Centre taking over news output and broadcasting a message from the Chief of General Staff calling on the British public to oust the Cranwell Government which is "denying individual liberty, attacking the Royal Family and putting the nation's security at risk". The Security Service attempted to jam the broadcast part way through distorting the picture and sound before eventually blocking the signal.
