Edgbaston’s once mighty Pebble Mill BBC studios are now just a weed-grown vacant plot, but 7 Inch Cinema and Birmingham City University are to show a retrospective of the best of Pebble Mill’s productions at the Midlands Arts Centre, Cannon Hill Park, Birmingham from 2nd – 4th July 2010. Including screenings of Gangsters, and the excellent Penda’s Fen. Some of the original production teams will be attending. For those who can’t get there there’s a new local history and archive website about the studios, pebblemill.org.
