National Museums Liverpool Podcast: Liverpool on Film

The National Museums Liverpool Podcast weaves together stories from our collections with the experiences of people in Liverpool today, exploring connections between the past and the present.

From Jodie Comer to Stephen Graham and Jimmy McGovern, the stars of film and TV are making Liverpool proud, but the city itself is often the biggest star, with films from Captain America to Fantastic Beast and Batman all being filmed in the city. Why is Liverpool such an attraction to production companies around the world?

And where did it all begin? We head back to the 80s to hear an Extra’s perspective on how one film opened doors for cinema in the city.
