BTVFLOC stands for Birmingham Television & Filming Locations and celebrates some of shows and movies that have used the UK’s second city on the small and the big screen over the past 40 years.
The original tour formed part of both the Flatpack Festival and Still Walking Festival in 2012 and the content was inspired by the recent filming in the city for shows such as BBCs Hustle, Survivors, The Line of Duty and most recently Dancing on the Edge. As well as these recent shows the tour also looks at the history of filming in the city of Birmingham and provides a walking tour experience that visits over 10 stops along the route and explains some of the key scenes and shows that were filmed at each location.
Having joined forces with Sindy Campbell from Film Birmingham, tours also took place in June and October 2012, both were very well received by the attendees, with Sindy providing a unique insight into the work of Film Birmingham to attract shows and productions to the city.
With tales of Underworld Gangsters, Soap Queens, Con Artists, Merchant Bankers, Emerging Talent, Game Shows and Aspiring Chefs the 2 hour tour covers a wide variety of shows and movies dating back to the 1970s right through to the current day.
Expanded and updated for 2014 the tour now gives you the opportunity to visit exclusive interior locations used in Line of Duty and Dancing on the Edge that are not normally open to the public. The tour also features new location stops covering WPC56, By Any Means and the forthcoming BBC spy drama The Game.
