On December 1st, 2017 a Clean Air Action Day took place in Kings Heath, mainly on the High Street/Alcester Road. Measures included removing on-street parking and changing the way the traffic lights functioned, for just one day. (Passing that way the day before, we thought a Macbeth performance was happening as people moved whole hosts of fir trees along side the pavement. Ed.)
Enlisting the help of enthusiasts and sceptics from the local community, BBC TV staged the first ever large-scale experiment of its kind: using people power to try to bring about a quantifiable improvement in air quality for a single day., and to measure the results. (How enterprising can you get? You can catch the Programme – don’t miss it or you’ll never know what happened!)
The results are broadcast on Wednesday 10th January at 9pm on BBC2.:
