Peaky Blinders

 by Voltman , Thu Oct 17, 2013 10:36 pm

Finally the fictitious, fatuous yet unmissable BBC drama series Peaky Blinders has finished.
I saw no insight into Birmingham's past and not a single landmark was evident to my eyes, yet it is supposedly set in the early twenties, a period for which we have masses of photographic records.

Fictitious because the real and wholly cowardly Peaky Blinders were long gone by the end of the first world war and fatuous because I came away none the wiser, with a feeling of having wasted some hours looking for true historical content.
Carl Chinn has some historical facts.....
