The region’s local TV station ‘Made In Birmingham TV’ is committed to quality local programming. I am presenting some episodes of ‘the Streets of Birmingham’ looking at the history of some of the regions most famous thoroughfares. I driven through the history of Snow Hill-Constitution Hill-Hockley Hill-Soho Road; St. Mary’s Church to Soho House Museum via Soho Foundry; Barr Street outside Hudson’s Whistles to Aston Hall via Witton Road Aston; From WBA football ground to West Bromwich and then on to Dudley; From the old Lloyds Test House through Netherton—Dudley to the Black Country Museum on the Tipton Road; From Old Hill Station through Stourbridge up the Crystal Mile to the Old Red House.
