THE BLACK Country Living Museum was sprinkled with Hollywood glamour when Batman star, Cillian Murphy, filmed at the attraction.
The Dark Knight Rises star, along with a BBC crew, stopped off at the Tipton Road museum to film a new BBC Two gangster drama series called Peaky Blinders.
As part of the filming, crews transformed the museum’s rolling mill, canal headland and boat dock to look like 1920s Birmingham – where the story is set.
The saga, boasts a distinguished cast which also includes Sam Neill, Helen McCrory, Annabelle Wallis, Iddo Goldberg and Charlie Creed-Miles.
The museum’s iconic buildings have featured in a host of TV shows, dramas and films including Blue peter, BBC Land Girls, Homes Under the Hammer and Nigel Slater’s Toast.
