Clarendon Sixth Form College News

From student to millionaire

IMDb is one of the most popular sites on the internet today, but few people know it was formed by a former Clarendon Sixth Form College student, Col Needham.

IMDb or Internet Movie Database is used by millions of people to find information about films including: the actors cast, photos, reviews, plot and more.

Col created the website after he realised he had watched so many films, he couldn’t keep track of which ones he had or hadn’t seen and that others must have had the same problem.

Col, said: “It all started when our family got their first VHS player and once I got a computer there was no stopping me. The site is growing at an amazing rate. At the moment we have around 1.7 million details in the database and four million names in film and TV credits."
