Season 4

Season 4 once again took on the familiar setting in and around our Canal Arm and   Anchor Forge, with the addition of tables and chairs, wooden whisky crates and travelling caravan carts to take on a transformation into Charlie Strong’s Small Heath based Scrap Metal Yard. 

This season, the horses arrived, the boats were moved and the metal scraps were laid around ready for the Peaky Blinders gang who climbed aboard our historic boats and headed to our limekilns    and the back alley ways of Gregory's Store.

When Peaky Blinders writer, Steven Knight visited on set this year we stopped him and asked a few questions about the Museum being the home of the series:

What brings the filming back to the Museum year after year?

"It’s the home of the Peaky Blinders to be honest. It’s where it sort of comes from. The reason I wanted to do this was because, when I was a kid, my Dad used to take me when he was shoeing horses and we used to go to scrapyards and stables, one of them was Charlie Strong’s yard, which was a real place, and he was a real person.… And when I was creating the series I wanted to recreate this yard and this is just perfect, it looks just like it."

The Anchor Forge is one of the key areas that you use at BCLM and it does represent the real Charlie’s yard so how important is it to the plotline going forwards?

"In series four, it’s more important than ever because they face a threat that makes them come together at the safest place for them, their heartland - which is here. And so I love it because the Museum is wherever you point the camera, your still in the historic world, you're not going to suddenly see a motorway or a towerblock at all so I love it and it just makes it a very contained environment and if you speak to the actors, they love being here too. Where possible, we try to start (the filming) here at BCLM as it gets everyone in the mood, it gets everyone in the spirit of the time, do you know what I mean?"
