On British Newspapers
1 Besides the daily newspapers, there are a number of Sunday newspapers in Britain. Many of them are connected with the “dailies”, though not run by the same editor and his members. The Sunday papers are larger than the daily papers and usually contain more articles concerned with comment and general information rather than news. The national daily and Sunday papers have the largest circulation in the world. Of the Sunday papers, the Observer and the Sunday Times are the best known.
2 It is a regrettable fact that the number of magazines of a literary or political nature has dropped down since the war. This has probably been caused by the ever-wider use of radio and television. The most successful magazines are those published for women. Their covers are designed to catch the eyes and they certainly succeed in doing so! They offer their readers articles on fashion, needle work and many other matters of women interest. They also provide advice to those in love and adventures with handsome heroes. Some women’s magazines also include serious articles of more general interest.
3 The visitor who looks at the magazines displayed in a large bookstore which may be found in an important railway station will notice that there is a wide variety of technical books and magazines. There are magazines for the motorist, the farmer, the gardener, the nurse and many others.
4 There are many local and regional newspapers. It is common in Britain for a news agent to deliver the morning papers to his customers for a small extra payment; this service is usually performed by boys and girls who want to earn some pocket-money.
