Classic Clip: Telly Savalas Looks At 1970s Birmingham

Birmingham is 'my kind of town'.

Not my words - the words of Telly Savalas, who was recruited to promote the city in the 1970s, courtesy of a mini travelogue shown in cinemas. And Telly Savalas Looks At Birmingham wasn't the only flick of this type - Kojak also did films on places as far apart as Aberdeen and Portsmouth.

The story of these movies can be heard online on BBC Radio 4's Quota Quickies. Or you can watch the film yourself's a real gem...

Ahh the motor city. I used to walk under them roads and through the market. It wasn't much fun in the cold and rain, especially without a car. No mention of the regions biggest football club Aston Villa FC. Ken for London mayor, Greens 2nd choice.
