A new BBC documentary exploring the books that made Birmingham is to be broadcast as part of a series looking at literary work that has been influenced by various British cities.

The landscapes and cities that have inspired some of Britain’s best loved authors will be celebrated in a new series of documentaries produced by BBC English Regions in partnership with BBC Learning as part of the ‘Love To Read‘ season.
