Statistics for the British Media and Film Industry (FS2)

An amazing resource for historical statistical information on The Media and the British Film industry in Britain. But figures for recent decades are absent! However there is a good reason.

"This section assembles historical data about media in the UK. Mostly this data is effectively in the public domain, but for some datasets a cut-off date has been adopted and set at 1985—a not entirely arbitrary year as that it the one in which the British government cancelled the mechanisms by which extensive data about cinema and film releases were collected."
