It’s been seen on the big screen in Jingle Jangle and Stardust and it looks like a famous city street is set to reappear on our TVs after film crews were spotted there.

The show focuses on how toys act as a driver of cultural and economic change, as well as the many rivalries between companies.

The last series had episodes about board games, action figures, toy cars, and inventions like the Slinky or the Frisbee.

We do not know at the moment what the episode will be about, partially shot in Norwich.

Elm Hill, which was recently named one of the most beautiful streets in the world, is the city’s most complete medieval road despite being almost completely destroyed by a major fire in 1507.
