Tourists – Forget Venice – Come to the City Where Plastic Was Invented

Beyond Parody – a film in the spirit of ‘Balham Gateway to the South’ or Tele Salvalas’s films promoting Brum and Sheffield.

‘More Canals Than Venice’ includes many facts promoting Brum including that it was the city where plastic was invented and

Other facts in the film include Birmingham being the place where the cavity magnetron was invented… something found in every microwave oven

Despite being pointed as a ‘you tube hit’ – the link doesn’t even work, and is being sent by snailmail, perhaps the interweb wasn’t one of Brum’s inventions.
