Listen: Hustle stars speak

The BBC drama Hustle is being filmed in Birmingham and we have special interviews with the cast and producer. Every day this week, we'll add another to this page so keep checking back.

If you haven't seen Hustle before the show follows a group of con artists and their scams and features actors such as Birmingham-born Adrian Lester, American legend Robert Vaughn and Robert Glenister.

The first five series were filmed in London but production of the current - sixth - season has relocated to Birmingham, in what's being seen a major coup for the city.

The set is based in a warehouse in Saltley with the luxury penthouse where the con artists live and Eddie's infamous bar having been re-built inside. A lot of filming has also taken place off location at the Hotel Du Vin, the Jewellery Quarter, Victoria Square and Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery .

But don't expect to see any landmarks: although Hustle is being filmed in Birmingham, viewers will be convinced that the action is actually taking place in London.

The drama has moved to the West Midlands to save money, because it's cheaper to film here. But while the cast and crew of Hustle are here they're spending more than a million pounds in the region.

For the week of 21st September 2009, BBC WM's Paul Franks Show will be broadcasting interviews with a member of the Hustle cast every day at 5.45pm on 95.6FM.

You'll be able to listen again to the conversations with stars Robert Vaughn, Adrian Lester, Robert Glenister and producer Claire Phillips after they've been played out by Franksy.

Check this page every morning this week for a new interview.
