On Talking Pictures channel 82 on Tuesday 19 April at 7-30 to 7-40 am 1950 Birmingham and the road patrol bikes set off from the BSA factory on their annual road patrol, might be worth setting the tv recorder up might jog some memories. Roy

Thanks for the heads up. Just watched the video and the scenes at the BSA factory were very interesting as was the different approach in those days to Health & Safety with what I assume were BSA test riders!

However, the part of the video I wasn't convinced about was the shots of Smallbrook Queensway in the centre of Birmingham showing it 75% completed. I am pretty sure the redevelopment of Birmingham city centre didn't begin until the mid-1950's with the Queensway not being completed in 1961?
