Newspapers in Britain
The British Media consists of the press and radio and TV broadcasting.
If you get on a bus or catch a train in Britain, especially during the morning and evening “rush hour”, you’ll see a lot of people reading newspapers. The press tells us about various political views, interest and levels of education.
There are two main types of newspapers: the “popular” papers and the “quality” papers.
The Popular papers are less in size, with many pictures, big headlines and short articles. They are easy to read. They are such papers as: “Daily Mail”, “Daily Express”, “Daily Mirror”, “Daily Star”,
The “quality” papers are for more serious readership. These papers are bigger in size, with larger articles and more detailed information. The “quality” papers are: “Daily Telegraph”, “The Times”, “The Guardian”, “Financial Times”
In addition to daily papers we have just mentioned above there are Sunday papers. They have a higher circulation than the dailies. Sunday papers in Great Britain are such “quality” papers as: “Observer”, “Sunday Times”, “Sunday Telegraph”, “News of the world”,
“Sunday Mirror” “Mail on Sunday”
More daily newspapers, national and regional are sold in Great Britain than in most other developed countries. There are about 135 daily papers and Sunday papers, 2000 weekly papers and about 100 papers produced by members of ethnic groups.
A lot of people buy a morning paper, an evening paper and a couple of Sunday papers. On an average day 2/3 people over the age of 15 read a national morning paper, about ¾ read a Sunday paper. So it’s not surprising to learn that national newspapers have a circulation of 15.8 million copies on weekdays and 19 million on Sundays.
Newspapers are almost always financially independent of any political party. However, during general election campaigns many papers recommend their readers to vote for a particular political party. Ownership of the national London and regional daily newspapers is concentrated in the hands of large press publishing groups.
The newspapers in Britain are proud of the fact that they are different from each other – each tries to have a definite profile.
As far as broadcasting and telecasting are concerned there are two radio and TV stations.
The first one – well-known BBC – British Broadcasting Corporation
And the second – IBA – Independent Broadcasting Authorities.
