In the first few months of the AHRC Sixties Cinema Project the team compiled a set of data which included cast, crew, production, financing, distribution, awards and reception information on the 991 British films released between 1960 and 1969. This database effectively provided us with a detailed map of the decade, allowed us to chart trends over time and enabled us to answer some key questions. For example, which genres of film were most popular in the 60s? How did the funding practices change over time? How much lasting impact have certain kinds of film had for critics and audiences?
