Picture This

Birmingham city centre skyline, taken by @dsevo

You’ll struggle to find an image of Brum's skyline as cinematic as this one shot by David Evans earlier last year.

Those warm tones remind me of stepping out into town for a Summer evening party. Bring ‘em on! 🌇


Consider This

Carl Chinn presents Hidden Brum, by Birmingham Live TV

Spend an hour exploring Birmingham's past with Carl Chinn

A compilation of Birmingham Live TV’s ‘Hidden Brum’ segments from the late ‘90s sees local historian Carl Chinn visit historic Brummie buildings and museums and chat to resident makers and doers, giving us an insight into how things used to be run and manufactured in the area. 

We think the best stories come from those not often celebrated; the hard workers who keep things ticking behind the scenes and continue to turn the cogs in a hard working city. This was an informative and inspiring watch that we hope you find solace in amongst the hubbub of modern day life.

Watch here.
