The funding is part of the Digital Film and Archive Fund which is a UK Film Council Lottery fund, this was set up to increase public access to regional screen heritage. This project is funded from the Regional Investment Fund England (RIFE) through the UK Film Council’s Digital Film Archive Fund via South West Screen and Arts Council England.
Under the provision of the formal Anchor agreement between the BBC and Bristol organisations, 'A Time Traveller's Guide to Bristol' has been allowed usage of the Points West film archive which dates back to the 1950s. We are very grateful to the BBC and in particular Alan Baker for all his help and guidance with this. .
