The "Alfred Hitchcock DVD Wiki" replaces the former "Alfred Hitchcock DVD Information Site", which was created in 2003.
The main purpose of the old site was to catalogue the many Hitchcock related DVD releases from around the world, and the site contained details of over 500 releases.
The New Site
In mid-2006, work began on moving the site into a Wiki. As well as being easier to update, a Wiki allows for collaborative authoring.
By the end of 2006, all of the content from the old site has been added to the Wiki.
If you have any suggestions, please feel free to join the message board:

At present, the site does not display any commercial adverts. Please note that the site does include affiliated links to Amazon sites, as the modest income provided by this helps offset the web hosting costs.
However, we are keen to provide free banner links to any non-profit/non-commercial Hitchcock related web site. If you have such a site and would like a banner including on random pages, please send an email to the Wiki administrator:
- admin [at] daveyp.com
We are also happy to promote any Hitchcock related items such as book and DVDs. Press releases and promotional material can be sent to the email address shown above.
If you feel you would like to make a small donation towards the costs of maintaining the site, please see this page. At present, the hosting for the entire site costs over $400 per year.
