The Wall In The Head

By Christopher Beanland

A black comedy about love, loss, the death of dreams, failure, bad TV, bad jokes, brutalist buildings. And Birmingham.

So here's one of those TV programmes. I was watching Gangsters while I wrote the book and although it is about crime and The Wall in The Head isn't, I loved the way Gangsters gave Brum an air of sleazy glamour. It was made by the Beeb at the now defunct Pebble Mill when Birmingham produced a lot of Television and I could imagine Mids TV making stuff like this in their fictional heyday. It's celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. If you want to watch, start with the stand alone Play For Today... the two series followed later. The breaking of the fourth wall at the end of the show inspired me to do the same a few times in The Wall in The Head. Very clever stuff.
