BBC Midlands Today at 50: 1964-1974

BBC Midlands Today celebrates its 50th anniversary by looking back at its origins in September 1964.

It started broadcasting from a small newsroom in Birmingham's Broad Street, before moving to Pebble Mill in 1971.

Tom Coyne went on to present the programme until 1980, interviewing some of the biggest names of the day, including Muhammad Ali.
