Harvey and weelittledrummer: I was in Birmingham, too, on the night of the Tavern in the Town bombing. In a student flat off the Bristol Road, to be precise. Some of our flatmates had gone into town that night (though not, thankfully, to that pub), so a lot of anxious waiting. This was long before the days of mobile phones, of course, and everyone in our campus of flats queued well into the night to make quick phone calls home from the public phone box to let our families know we were OK.

Did you by any chance see the good TV drama series that was on recently (the title escapes me) about a group of lads growing up in the Midlands in the 70s and set against the events of the time (including the bomb) ?
