Spotlight published the first edition of the iconic Contacts Handbook in 1947. Over the next 100+ editions it became the go-to book for anyone working, or wanting to work, in the UK entertainment industry. Featuring listings and adverts for companies, services and individuals across all branches of Television, Stage, Film and Radio it has been the industry ‘address book’ for decades.
Now an online only, google optimised resource, it still gives users thousands of fully searchable and comprehensive listings which can also be found by location.
