The TV documentary will be looking at the city of Birmingham during the 1700’s and at what it was that made it the city that it is known for today.

The BBC1 documentary will be the first screened on April 30, 7:30 local time on BBC1. Nothing has been hinted at the documentary making it’s way over the pond for US viewers however that does not mean it will never do so. Best thing to do is to keep an eye out on BBC America for any announcements.
