Gosta Green Revisited

When BBC Birmingham outgrew its first base on Broad Street, television production moved to the old Delicia Cinema on Gosta Green. This morning’s screening is a rare chance to sample a selection of Gosta Green’s output, introduced by TV historian Lez Cooke (Royal Holloway) who has been focussing on the studio as part of his AHRC-funded project Forgotten Television Drama. Includes the opening episode of Rainbow City, the first UK series to feature a black actor (Errol John) in the lead role, and will be followed by a discussion involving people who worked at the studio.
