#AceHistoryDesk – Black Sabbath: 50 Years celebrated the once derided, now lauded, quartet from Aston that invented heavy metal, Britain’s world-beating indigenous musical genre.

Black Sabbath,  1970.
Black Sabbath, 1970. Bridgeman Images.

Along with the global popularity of the TV series Peaky Blinders, the seemingly infinite ubiquity of the Tolkein franchise and the success of the recent Commonwealth Games, it was evidence of the considerable soft power wielded by a city many find hard to like.

Richard Vinen, in his combative and enjoyable Second City, goes out of his way to understand the history and identity of his native city and to reveal its mysteries to outsiders. The city has its admirers, especially among those bored by the sentimental self-regard of prettier, prissier places. Jonathan Meades, for example, admires the city’s ‘aptitude for substance over cosmetic style’, its ‘self-deprecating, unboastful, and peculiarly ironic humour’, and – trigger warning – its accent: the closest we have to the English of Shakespeare, who knew the northern reaches of the Forest of Arden on which Birmingham was sited. Meades suggests you declaim Polonius’ ‘Neither a borrower nor a lender be’ in Brummie.

Vinen, a modern historian, is brief in his survey of the city’s deeper past. Birmingham’s identity – and consequently, Vinen argues, Britain’s – was forged, literally, in the 16th and 17th centuries, at the centre of a trading and manufacturing network built on iron and coal from its hinterland.

Long a centre of non-conformity – a Brummie, John Rogers, compiled the first authorised edition of the Bible in English and was martyred for his sins in 1555 – it became the arsenal of the Parliamentary forces during the Civil Wars. Inevitably, when Charles II was restored, non-conformism came under fire. But the Act of Uniformity of 1662 and especially the Five Mile Act that followed, banning dissenting ministers from within five miles of a borough, had no effect on thriving Birmingham, as it had no remit in a town unincorporated. It became a haven of dissent.

The Industrial Revolution in Birmingham and its hinterland was different from that experienced by the north of England. In Manchester and its environs it was about textile manufacture on a grand scale, which chewed and spat out a low-paid, low-skilled workforce.

Engels would have had a very different analysis of class dynamics had he lived in Birmingham, which preferred highly skilled, highly paid specialists to practise its ‘1,000 trades’. In the 100 years after 1750 Birmingham registered three times the number of patents of any other British settlement. Matthew Boulton’s Soho Manufactory, where he teamed up with Scotsman James Watt to produce the steam engine, became central to British manufacturing prowess. At the same time Birmingham became a focus for the British Enlightenment, centred on the Lunar Society, which met in Boulton’s Soho House. Among its luminaries were Watt and fellow dissenters Erasmus Darwin, Joseph Priestley, Josiah Wedgwood and Joseph Day, who wrote the anti-slavery tract The Dying Negro in 1773.

Vinen hits his stride when he tells the history of Birmingham over the last 150 years. It did not become a city until 1889, when it was already the dynamo of late Victorian Britain, ‘the best run city in the world’ thanks to its charismatic mayor and MP, Joseph Chamberlain. A self-made dandy, whose fortune derived from screws, he brought gas, electricity and sewage – the latter an obsession – under municipal control.

Having contributed the Spitfire to Britain’s war effort, Birmingham’s immediate postwar years were a golden age: immigration soared, especially from the Caribbean and Indian subcontinent – a quarter of today’s population is of Asian heritage – though many faced outrageous prejudice, documented unflinchingly by Vinen. The boom lasted until the 1970s, by which time the average wage in Birmingham surpassed even that of the City of London. But, in an act of gross stupidity, successive British governments decided the West Midlands should be ‘levelled down’ – too many people wanted to live there, damaging the potential of other, less industrious cities – and so its expansion was neutered.

The assault on manufacturing that began in the early 1980s hit Brum hard; stifled by national government, it had become far too dependent on its troubled car industry, which collapsed. Unemployment, seven per cent in 1979, rose to 20 per cent just three years later.

In curing the disease of industrial strife, the Thatcher government all but killed the patient, though Birmingham revived to become one of Europe’s youngest cities, with a renewed emphasis on finance – both Lloyds and the Midland Bank (now HSBC) were founded there. Birmingham is, Vinen concludes, like its more affluent citizens, ‘self-made’, a one-off. He has done an excellent job in revealing the neglected past of the refreshingly unsentimental, self-deprecating Second City whose motto could only be ‘Forward’.

Second City: Birmingham and the Forging of Modern Britain: Paul Lay is author of Providence Lost: the Rise and Fall of Cromwell’s Protectorate (Head of Zeus, 2020).

#AceDailyNews says here’s todays Newspaper Headlines: Its all about ‘ Migration Crisis ‘ as thousands of ‘ Illegals ‘ pay massive amounts of MONEY to those in ‘ Organised Crime Gangs ‘ who illegally load in FACT overload small boats and without any thoughts for the ‘ Capsizing & Drownings ‘ and on Sunday one person ‘ USED PETROL BOMB on a centre in Dover this has to end NOW Kindness & Love XX says 🙏🙏’s Lord Thy God For Those That NEED Sanctuary Receive it And Teach those others Not to Abuse the System Amen

The Mail's main image is of tennis player Emma Raducanu
The fire attack at a migrant centre in Dover is featured in several of Monday’s papers. The Mail says witnesses described seeing a “laughing” man target the facility with three incendiary devices. It comes amid fears over the number of migrants that have crossed the Channel to the UK this year, the paper reports. It also says concerns are growing over the conditions at a second asylum processing site in Kent.
The Telegraph features an image of a man wearing a long black coat and holding a cane. He is standing next to a woman wearing a black dress with a furry cream collar.
Home Secretary Suella Braverman’s plans to relieve overcrowding at the asylum processing centre in Kent lead the Telegraph. Overcrowding at the site worsened on Sunday as hundreds of migrants were transferred there after the centre in Dover came under attack, the paper reports. It says the Home Office is drawing up proposals for spot booking rooms rather than reserving entire hotels as part of the measures.
An image of a man throwing a device out of the window of a car at the Dover migrant centre is on the front page of the Express.
The Express also looks at the fire attack on the Dover migrant centre. The paper reports that two were hurt when the devices exploded. The bomb squad deactivated one device found in the attacker’s car in a petrol station, it says. Elsewhere, the paper warns food prices could rise again after Putin abandoned the internationally brokered grain deal with Ukraine.
The Guardian's main image is of a man paying tribute at a memorial in Itaewon.
The Guardian says ministers are accused of creating “wild west” conditions in matters of national security by the increased use of personal email and phones to conduct confidential business. The paper’s main image is of a man paying tribute at a memorial in Itaewon to those who were killed in a crush there over the weekend. The paper also reports a new round of cuts at the BBC could drastically reduce local radio programming in England.
King Charles and Rishi Sunak feature on the front page of the i.
And the i reports Mr Sunak is prepared to U-turn on his decision not to attend the COP27 climate conference after backlash from his party. The paper also says the attack on the migrant centre in Dover happened as Ms Braverman faces calls to quit over the conditions at the Kent site.
An image of a doctor examining a hospital patient is on the front page of the Mirror.
The Mirror says the NHS is facing its worst winter on record as doctors fear a mix in Covid and flu cases will spark a crisis.
The front page of the FT
The FT says Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decision to ditch the deal that allows Ukraine to export grain from its Black Sea ports will lead to another jump in global food prices. Experts warn it will have “catastrophic consequences” for poorer nations, the paper notes.
An image of England defender Reece James is on the front of the Sun.
The Sun says that an arrest is imminent after a troll who abused Chelsea defender Reece James has been tracked down to the Middle East. Mr James gave statements to Instagram, police and officials abroad, the paper says.
Three images of Russian President Vladimir Putin feature on the front of the Daily Star.
“Who’s the Vladdy?” asks the Daily Star. The paper says the Ukrainian suspect Vladimir Putin has been replaced by three body doubles who have had plastic surgery.

Several of the front pages carry pictures of yesterday’s petrol bomb attack at a centre for migrants in Dover. 

The Daily Express describes what happened as “horrifying”, and says witnesses have spoken of a man “laughing” as he hurled three incendiary devices at the busy facility, before killing himself. The Times says the man is thought to have been a British citizen who drove from elsewhere in the country to carry out the attack. 

The Daily Mail says it marks an intensification in Britain’s migrant crisis – amid concerns over the number of people being picked up in the Channel and the conditions they’re being held in.

The Daily Telegraph reports that the home secretary is considering housing migrants in hotels alongside the public, as part of plans to relieve overcrowding at the main asylum processing centre in Kent. 

The paper says Suella Braverman has been under scrutiny for her handling of what it calls “catastrophic overcrowding” for Channel migrants at the disused Manston airfield, where hundreds more people were moved from the Dover reception centre after it was petrol bombed.

The Daily Mirror carries a front page warning that doctors fear the NHS is facing the worst winter on record, sparked by a mix of Covid and flu. The paper says medical staff are worried that people will die needlessly unless the government intervenes.

Home Secretary Suella Braverman

The i reports that Rishi Sunak is prepared to make a U-turn – and decide to attend the upcoming climate summit in Egypt. It says the prime minister has been facing what it calls a “major Tory backlash” over his decision not to go to Cop27 because of “pressing” issues at home.

The Guardian reports that BBC local radio in England is under threat from huge cuts. Sources tell the paper that the proposals – due to be announced this week – will herald the end of most local stations as truly distinctive, standalone outlets. 

A BBC spokesperson says staff will hear about any proposed changes first – adding that the corporation’s plans are designed to ensure it keeps pace with audiences in a fast-changing world.

With just under three weeks to go before the start of the football World Cup in Qatar, The Sun reports that a racist troll – who abused the England player, Reece James – has been tracked down to the Middle East. 

The paper says an arrest is imminent. The 22-year-old Chelsea defender tells The Sun he’s determined to fight back against online menace, by reporting it whenever he sees it – but admits it’s “tough”.

#AceHistoryDesk – Australia’s Indigenous cricketing history explored in new documentary and exhibition We Are One

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander readers are advised that this article contains images and names of people who have died.

Film director and Malyangapa/Barkindji woman Sasha Parlett and photographer Claire Letitia Reynolds have spent the last year on the We Are One project.

In an effort to bring this unique period of Australia’s sporting history to new audiences, two Sunshine Coast women have collated the stories of those with connections to the First XI in a documentary and photography exhibition.

“Cricket Australia decided not to name their January 26 [Big Bash games the] Australia Day tests and I thought that was a very inclusive move on their behalf,” Ms Reynolds said.

“It made me investigate a little bit further into Cricket Australia and cricket for Indigenous Australians — and [I] came across this really, really heroic journey of the athletes from 1868.”

The project features elders from Queensland and Victoria, current First Nations cricketers and two direct descendants from the 1868 side.

Aunty Fiona Clark is a great-great-granddaughter of Grongarrong (Mosquito), while Uncle Richard Kennedy, is the great-great-grandson of Yanggendyinadyuk (Dick-a-Dick).

Both Grongarrong and Yanggendyinadyuk played on the all-Indigenous side in 1868.

Portraits in the photography exhibition are printed on fine art paper with handcrafted dye from native leaves, including Swamp Bloodwood and Narrow-leaved Red Gum.

For the documentary, Ms Parlett interviewed the participants, asking about their experience as a First Nations cricketer or their knowledge about the First XI.

“I was able to, through the voices of First Nations cricket players today and descendants of the original team …tell the story of the First XI and experiences of being a First Nations cricketer today.”Gubbi Gubbi/Kabi Kabi woman Rosie and Wiradjuri man Austyn are among the current cricketers in the exhibition.(Supplied: Claire Letitia Reynolds)none

Tracing history

As part of the film and photographic collaboration, the women journeyed through Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.

They began by tracing the team’s story back to Harrow, Victoria where the local Discovery Centre proudly chronicles the story of the First XI.

It is also where the annual Mullagh Cup is played between Indigenous descendants of the original side and non-Indigenous players.The annual Mullagh Cup is named in commemoration of Johnny Mullagh, the captain of the original side.(Back Roads Digital: Marc Eiden)none

Ms Parlett said visiting the regional town and nearby Edenhope — the site where the Indigenous side first gathered to practice — was “amazing”.

“We actually got to go out to the field where they did all their training and … walk through their steps to see part of their story.”The We Are One documentary celebrates the First XI(Supplied: Sasha Parlett)none

How the team got to England

Queensland was not a state in 1868, so almost all of the team’s players were from Victoria.

Tom Wills, a cricketer from a wealthy New South Wales family descended from convicts, assembled the team.

Many of the Indigenous cricketers on the team came from settlements where they played the game.

One of those who did not hail from the garden state was Jallacharamin, also known as James Crowe, a Gubbi Gubbi/Kabi Kabi man from Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.

“He was a known to be a chief of the Gubbi Gubbi and a very powerful man,” Ms Reynolds said.

She said Wills saw the players’ potential and “athletic prowess” and began training.

“Initially they thought, ‘Hey we can probably make a bit of money out of this, let’s tour everyone back over in England’,” Ms Reynolds said.Tom Wills with the First XI in Melbourne in 1866.(Supplied: Bradman Museum Collection)none

Last year, John McPherson, a descendant of Wills, told the ABC that seven years prior to the First XI’s 1868 tour of England, Wills participated in the revenge killings of Gayiri people during the Snake Ridge massacre. 

However, other descendants of Wills claim McPherson has made an “error in judging” Wills’ involvement in the massacres.

Cricket and culture

Ms Reynolds said the First XI players had to be smuggled out of Victoria on a ship to England because of a new law, the Aboriginal Protection Act, which gave the government full control over the lives of Aboriginal people.

While in England the team played to substantial crowds in counties across the country, including Lords.

They played a total of 47 matches between May and October, 1868.

According to the National Museum of Australia, they won 14, lost 14 and drew 19 — much to the surprise of their competitors.

“They came up basically dead-on even with the English side,” Ms Reynolds said.The exhibition opens in Canberra in January and Victoria in February 2023.(ABC Sunshine Coast: Ollie Wykeham)none

Away from the pitch, the players gave demonstrations of their culture in between matches and during lunch breaks.

Ms Parlett said that included spear throwing, shields and Woomeras.

“A lot of our local Indigenous tools they took over there with them on the ships and they performed for the Lords in England, which is just fascinating,” she said.

Monuments to honour players

While the Indigenous First XI garnered respect in England, sadly a couple of the side died there.

“Leaving Australia for the very first time, they came across diseases that they’d never seen before,” Ms Parlett said.

“We’ve been told that there are monuments over there dedicated to players that we lost in the travel.”We Are One opened on the Sunshine Coast in October.(Supplied: Claire Letitia Reynolds)none

The exhibition travels to Canberra’s PhotoAccess in January 2023 and to Harrow, Victoria in February.

The creators hope to eventually share it with audiences nationally and in England.
