    The London Project is a study of the film business in London, 1894-1914, organised by the AHRB Centre for British Film and Television Studies. One of its major outcomes is a database of information about cinemas and film businesses in London before the First World War. Users can search by name of venue or business (eg, cinema, producer etc.), London borough, address (ie. street name) and classification. The information used to build the database has come from contemporary trade papers and directories, newspapers, local government records, Board of Trade files, memoirs and London borough archives.

    This site offers a vast amount of information about broadcasting history, covering (despite the name) television and radio, mainly in the USA and Canada but also venturing as far afield as the UK and Australia. Of particular value to researchers are the wide range of digitised, searchable periodicals and journals which, although the main focus of the site is on the early days of broadcasting also stretch as far as the 21st century. NB. It is not clear to what degree rights have been cleared for some of the material on this site. David Gleason, who maintains the site, operates on a basis of ‘if the owner of the material complains I will take it down’ - rather than seeking permission beforehand.
