1965 BBC documentary following Birmingham architect John Madin
John Madin is an English architect. He was born in Moseley, Birmingham, circa 1925. His company, known as John H D Madin & Partners from 1962 and the John Madin Design Group from 1968, were active in Birmingham for over 30 years. Some of the buildings his company designed have now been demolished. Societies, such as the 20th Century Society have campaigned to have some of his buildings listed, but have not yet achieved this. English Heritage has twice recommended the Central Library for listing but political and economic factors have been used to oppose it. The Minister is at present considereing her decision (2008).
