Trivia

Brum is the story of a small replica car who ventures out into Big Town when his owner isn’t looking, and gets up to all manner of adventures. Each episode begins and ends in the same way, with Brum leaving the other cars in the motor museum when the owner’s back is turned and heading out to explore Big Town, before eventually returning to his place. Each series has had its own background music. From series 1–2, the introduction music was the same, but in series 2, they used different instruments. From Series 3–5, the music became jazzy and a new title sequence was directed by Nigel P. Harris.

The title character is a half-scale replica of a late-1920s Austin 7 ‘Chummy’ convertible. He drives by himself (in reality by radio control) and can express himself in a number of ways including opening and closing his doors and bonnet, ‘bobbing’ his suspension, flashing and swivelling his headlamps, rotating his starting crank, extending his turn signals, and using his horn.

Originally the programme was set in the city of Birmingham in England, hence the name: in addition to its onomatopoeic nature of a car engine revving, Brum is a common colloquial name for Birmingham and its inhabitants are known as Brummies. Later series make no mention of Birmingham, calling it the ‘Big Town’, but Brum still continued to be filmed there and many Birmingham streets and landmarks can be seen in each episode, including Aston University.

The show has also aired on ABC, ABC1 and ABC2 in Australia.

Trivia

Museum Owner (Mike Cavanagh): The owner of the car museum where Brum lives. He is the only human character who appears in every episode and the only character who is apparently oblivious to Brum’s adventures, despite finding items in Brum’s backseat at the end of each episode in Series 1 and 2. The actor, Mike Cavanagh, actually owned the Cotswold Motor Museum until 1999.
