Set in the lawless streets of post-war Birmingham on the cusp of the 1920s, Peaky Blinders shows a Britain that is “a tumultuous mix of despair and hedonism, a nation cleaned out by the extravagances of the Great War”.

Series creator Steven Knight (Dirty Pretty Things, Eastern Promises) commented: “The story I want to tell is based on family legend and historical fact. It is a fiction woven into a factual landscape which is breathtakingly dramatic and cinematic, but which for very English reasons has been consigned to historical text books.”
