Behind the scenes on the set of BBC drama Peaky Blinders

BBC Two's between-the-wars drama Peaky Blinders is as far removed from Downton Abbey as you can get.

The epic drama follows a gang of the same name, so-called because they hid razor blades in the peaks of their caps.

The six-part series starts in 1919 and is set in a slum neighbourhood in Birmingham.

It was designer Grant Montgomery's job to bring the streets, homes and gambling dens of the time back to life.
