Dennis Nilsen’s Radio Used From 1983 At Brixton Prison

Dennis Nilsen’s Radio Used From 1983 At Brixton Prison

This is Dennis Nilsen’s portable radio that he owned during his entire time on remand at Brixton 
Prison in 1983, and into the early years of his sentence as a convicted prisoner. 
It is referred to in History of a Drowning Boy (DN’s autobiography) on page 151:
“Towards the end of April, I sat on the bed in my ‘punishment’ cell reading, as my Philips 
202 radio softly sang out its beat of cheap potency. It was as hot as it could get in that 
special type of cell with sealed windows that admitted no air. My tired eyes moved up from 
the sluggish print of the book and panned instinctively to the cell opposite and my attention 
was drawn to some new and sudden movement.”
The item is also featured in the colour plates section of the autobiography
