These photos are from the recent Gosta Green Revisited screening held at the Midlands Arts Centre on 15th October 2016. The screening was introduced by academic Lez Cooke, who has been researching the seemingly forgotten dramas from the BBC Birmingham studios which preceded Pebble Mill. Three dramas were shown, and episode of Rainbow City, an episode of The Newcomers (shown here in the bottom photo), and a 30 min drama called Sinking Fish Move Sideways. These 1960s dramas were still surprisingly watchable.

The screening was followed by a discussion with costume designer Joyce Hawkins, and cameraman Peter (whose surname I’ve forgotten).
