Among the hundreds of curated collections available in the Mediatheque there’s a special focus on UK’s second city and the broader West Midlands region in Brum and Beyond: West Midlands on Screen. This collection brings together titles from the BFI National Archive and Media Archive for Central England (MACE), illuminating a century of life in this hugely diverse region. The urban, industrial heartland of Birmingham, Wolverhampton and surrounding towns is just one focal point in an area of historic and often rural delights, from Shakespeare’s Stratford and Elgar’s Malvern Hills to the remote beauty of the Welsh Borders.
