    The cinema as a place of popular mass entertainment towered over Liverpool in the first half of the last century. This left a rich legacy, not only of picture house buildings, but also of the pictures made for an insatiable and loyal audience. This site is devoted to collecting and preserving stories and images from the Golden Age of the Silver Screen in Liverpool: old black and white photographs, posters, handbills, programmes and lobby cards together with interviews and essays bear witness to the important role that cinema played in the lives of the working people of Liverpool. Some of the gems included are: an interview with filmmaker Alex Cox, who visits the Futuristic Cinema and recounts his memories of the first film he ever watched there; an interview with actor Ricky Tomlinson; and the oral histories from the projectionists, usherettes and organ players. The website is a ‘living archive’ which means that anyone with a story about cinemas in Liverpool is welcomed to share it.

    Who is the most prolific British female director? Which subjects feature in British horror films? Which countries have co-produced British feature films? These are the kinds of question we can now easily find answers for. After a few years in the making the BFI has finally published an online compilation of UK feature films released to cinemas from the beginning of film history until now. As well as presenting a broad overview of the UK film industry, the BFI have mapped other information onto each of the film titles (e.g. people and companies involved) to enrich and provide unique insights into UK film history. This information should be of interest to film buffs, journalists, researchers, or anyone with an interest in UK film and/or history. It is searchable with shareable data visualisations on a dedicated BFI Filmography web platform or record by record on via the Collections Search.
    The Filmography is a dynamic resource, and the underlying data is constantly being reviewed and updated.

Episodes so far include an interview with Chris Perry, CEO of Kaleidoscope, a celebration of Tony Hancock, which presents rare audio recording clips from his shows, and an interview with Sue Malden, the first ever BBC Archive selector. Although not easy to find, the site also includes reviews of DVDs.
