Francis Brett Young – Life in the Black Country

Francis Brett Young – Life in the Black Country

One author captured the vivid life of the Black Country - Francis Brett Young.

The pages of his novels bring to life nailmakers noisily shaping red hot iron on their anvils, their families constant struggle to survive; and the passions of young lovers. Local historian Dr Michael Hall, Chairman of the Francis Brett Young Society and former President of the Black Country Society discusses this often-forgotten author and his writings with broadcaster, Graham Fisher.
