Filming is currently taking place in Birmingham for a new BBC drama written and directed by award-winning film-maker Stephen Poliakoff.
Set in the 1930s, Dancing On The Edge will follow a black jazz band in London. It will be broadcast on BBC Two later this year.
Birmingham City Council House has been made up to look like a 1930s London hotel for the series.
Stephen Poliakoff said Birmingham had some great locations for evoking the time period.
