A plea from the Guvnor

In the last thirty days we have brought thirty new films to the site - one a day! We’ve identified a fair few previously unknown locations and added another 318 new comparison shots for your amusement, interest and education. That’s not too bad for a site run entirely by enthusiasts.
 
We’ve seen more visitors reaching the site too. In the last month our hits have totalled round 7000 a day with 17000 pages viewed every 24 hours. So we appear to be pretty popular.
 
But sadly, although our researchers and contributors cost nothing for their huge amount of time and effort, keeping Reel Streets on line does. 
 
Unfortunately, the revenue earned from small amount of advertising that we carry does not add up to the fees for servers and technical support.
 
We are free of pop-ups; we've avoided the intrusive 5 seconds of adverts that play before you can access the site; we've protected visitors from diversions to unwanted, malicious and possibly dangerous sites and daily we prevent attacks from hackers, crooks, phishers and the rest of the criminal on-line community.
 
All of our researchers and contributors put in a huge amount of work to bring Reel Streets to the world so please consider making a donation to help us continue.
 
Thank you for reading and enjoy Reel Streets.

Brighton TV

If you live within the Brighton area of the UK it has been drawn to our attention that this station regularly shows a number of B&W British films. The service is available via Freeview 7 or Virgin Media 159. Its broadcast schedule can be viewed at http://thelatest.co.uk Thanks to the Brighton Film Studios and their predecessors there have been quite a few films shot in the Brighton area, which is reflected by the number of times the Town is featured on Reel Streets.

New Year Locations Identified

A Very Happy New Year to all. Thank you to everyone who has contributed in one way or another since whenever, it is your involvement that makes ReelStreets the website that it is, not least a source of resolving that quite popular question "where was that filmed?". Those of you that have any knowledge or involvement in websites will know that usage statistics are very questionable but they can be relied upon to at least give reliable trends. In this regard we are delighted to say 26th December 2016, yes, Boxing Day, was the heaviest days activity that we have, we believe, ever witnessed. That was followed by the 27th December. Was that to do with the films shown on TV, settle family "arguments" or just all our faithful followers having time to see if they could resolve an unknown. Whatever it was, thank you for your interest and for turning to Reelstreets.
