Queen's visit helped Birmingham cope with bomb trauma
Emergency workers recall how a visit from the Queen helped them recover from their traumatic experiences after the Birmingham bombings in the 1970s.
In November 1974 the IRA bombed two pubs in Birmingham, killing 21 people and injuring many more.
Policewoman Margaret Adams, fireman Dave Pithie, and taxi driver Terry Curley are reunited for the first time to share their experiences of the bombings.
They recall the Queen's official visit to the city a few months later to meet those who helped the victims.
Thirty-eight years on, the Queen visits the West Midlands this week as part of her Diamond Jubilee tour.
The Queen and I: West Midlands is on BBC One on Saturday, 14 July, 2012 at 17:00 BST and nationwide for seven days thereafter on the iPlayer.
