A Brit who invented IMDB in his bedroom has been given an honorary degree - and gave an acceptance speech in movie quotes.

Col Needham came up with the idea for the Internet Movie Database in his two bed semi in Bristol - which saw him became one of the most powerful men in Hollywood.

It started as a hobby for Col and has since been bought by Amazon and used by 250 million people a month.

He has been given an honorary doctorate by Bristol University - and gave his acceptance speech in movie quotes.
