Where *IS* 'Brum' filmed?

I know, I know I'm probably very sad, but whenever the little yellow car is on I spend the whole programme looking for clues as to where it's filmed! Is it really Brum? or is that simply the sound he makes? Wherever it is the shops are never crowded and the whole place looks lovely!

Somebody please put me out of my misery!

Oh and I think they tend to shoot in very early mornings. The daylight has that early morning appearance

Thanks Easy! I thought as much, but wasn't sure! (honest)

Why don't they tell you!

Definitely Birmingham. I would say mainly in the city centre or just outside. On the opening scene you can clearly see the top of the building I used to work in

Please note though that Birmingham isnt filled with nutters like the ones in the programme -

Mainly around Brindley Place, Centenary Square and Victoria Square, although I have also spotted The Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham too, so it might not all be Birmingham.

DS loves brum. the new series has started and he squeals and jumps about when he see's the brum ride outside argos in town.

i thought that as well DC, we were in on friday but had to get a decent meal had to walk all the way over to colmore row (bar utopia)

love b.ham now that it has been all done up in town.
do you live in b.ham?

You really are the founts of all knowledge!

When I tell dh that there is someone on MN that knows the answer to any question on earth, he doesn't believe me - now he will have to!

I may even stray away from beautiful Manchester to visit B'ham - I've only ever been to New St station!!and that was passing through!

DaddyCool Tue 05-Apr-05 19:05:42

no, i live in rugby. i had the day off on friday and dw and i left ds at his grandmas for the day and went in shopping, eating and farting around for the day. i quite like b'ham too. i'm in awe of the selfridges food and drink dept!

tiredemma Tue 05-Apr-05 19:07:49

thats what we did on friday, legs were killing by 2pm.

come to b.ham lucycat, you'd love it.!

DaddyCool Tue 05-Apr-05 19:09:38

that's cool, so we were both wandering around the same place doing the same thing on friday. you're not that horrible woman who stole the comfy seat in starbucks before DW could get to it were you!?

tiredemma Tue 05-Apr-05 19:10:46

nope, not guilty!
