Brutal, man

Brummie Architect John Madin designed the Central Library, the Post and Mail building, and a number of garage extensions in Yardley. In 1965 the BBC made a documentary about him as part of a series called Six Men, it’s now online on Google video.

As well as being interesting in itself, it does feature some lovely shots of late sixites Brum and provides some background on the man behind the building the Council seem so intent on wiping from our landscape (the Library, not the garages).
