Go Go Gadget
The Birmingham Mail recently reported that Digbeth will no longer be the home of the cult TV programme the Gadget Show:
“Channel 5 has announced that The Gadget Show will return to our screens this Spring in a new, revamped format.
The brand new series, will be called The Gadget Show: World Tour, with the presenters travelling the globe to test the latest in consumer gadgetry.
While the filming will no longer be based Digbeth’s Custard Factory, a Birmingham production team would still put the show together.”
This is a loss for Digbeth, and indeed the Custard Factory. Not to mention our local universities who provided students as focus groups for the show.
Here’s hoping the producers see sense and come back to Birmingham soon!
