Six Men: John Madin, Architect (1965)
An episode on John Madin, forming part of a 1965 BBC documentary series outlining the lives of 6 influential men of the day. This film illustrates the every day working life of the architect John Madin in the 1960s, but also also sheds a vivid light on his vision of town planning in the 1960s, which belies his impact on the built environment of the Midlands.
Windows on Edgbaston (1960)
The film shows an interview with John Madin on the Master Plan for the development of the Calthorpe Estate. The video has previously been used at the launch of the 1962 Calthorpe Estate redevelopment, while ‘Window on Edgbaston’ was also used for an illustrated booklet of the same title.
The films will be curated by architect and author of ‘Twentieth Century Architects: John Madin’, Alan Clawley.
