Our January episode launched tonight, featuring all the usual fun. plus interviews with singer-songwriter Thomas Atlas and award-winning film producer Patrick Carney. You can watch it here.
Steve’s guest in the January edition of Birmingham Now will be Sutton Coldfield actor and film producer Patrick Carney, whose crime drama Hello Darlin’ — directed by Gary Delaney — scooped the award for best overall film at the recent Birmingham Film Festival. Here they are at Sutton Coldfield Town Hall on Wednesday.
We were over at Sutton Coldfield Town Hall yesterday morning, filming Des Tong and Gary James the main section of Birmingham Now‘s January edition (which will be available from 27 December, the perfect tonic if you’re bored with Xmas repeats — on the telly, that is, rather than from too much turkey).
We were back at Birmingham’s Uprawr Studios this afternoon, to film the second of Des Tong’s ‘Featured Artist’ slots for Birmingham Now. This time, his guest was Sutton Coldfield-born singer-songwriter Thomas Atlas, the funk artiste formerly known as Tom C Walker.
