Liverpool Film Office has released an online archive charting the city's history in the movies.
The new website – www.liverpoolfilmoffice.tv – showcases the city as one of the UK’s top filming locations.
It includes snaps, clips and details of hundreds of movies, programmes, adverts and music videos, all filmed in Liverpool.
This dates back as far as 1896 when a film called Liverpool Scenes was shot in the city by Alexandre Promio for the Lumiere Brothers.
It is the earliest recorded footage of Liverpool’s Lime Street Station and the Liverpool Overhead Railway, which opened in 1893.
An extensive Made on Merseyside list charts major blockbusters including The 51st State, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Sherlock Holmes and Fast and Furious 6.
Liverpool Film Office bosses revealed the site would also be a one-stop shop for producers looking to film in Merseyside.
Filmmakers can find out information about the locations available, crew, casting agencies and recommendations for where units can be based.
Kevin Bell, locations co-ordinator for the Liverpool Film Office, said: “It has been a labour of love and we’ve been working on it for quite a while.
“With a lot of the documents and the Made on Merseyside list we had versions running internally for years but we didn’t have the website to make them available to the public.
“Again with the images, we made a point of keeping hold of everything we could because we wanted to be able to show them together for the first time.
“It seemed the best time to do it with having such a successful year. We’ve got some major projects being filmed in the city over the next year and we wanted to capitalise on that and also move forward.
“The website is aimed at those in the industry but hopefully the people of Liverpool can enjoy the images and information as well.”
