National newspapers[edit | edit source]

Traditionally newspapers could be split into "quality", "serious-minded" newspapers (usually referred to as broadsheets due to their large size) and tabloid, less serious newspapers. However, due to considerations of convenience of reading, particularly in cafés and on trains etc., The Independent and The Times have both recently switched to a 'compact'-sized format, traditionally used by tabloids. The Guardian switched in September 2005 to a Berliner format, a few centimetres wider than a compact, and about 10 centimetres (4 inches) taller.

Sunday "serious-minded" newspapers have tended to keep the broadsheet format due to considerations of size, as to maintain the same level of content in a tabloid paper would result in a single section many would find too thick, heavy and cumbersome. Conveniently fewer people read their Sunday newspaper on a crowded train. This is beginning to change, however, and the Independent on Sunday is now printed in compact format and The Observer in Berliner.

Local newspapers[edit | edit source]

Most towns and cities in the UK have at least one local newspaper, such as the Evening Post in Bristol and The Echo in Cardiff. However, they are not known nationally for their journalism in the way that (despite much syndication) city-based newspapers in the USA are (e.g. The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe). A major exception to this pattern was the well-regarded Manchester Guardian, which dropped the 'Manchester' from its name (1959) and relocated its main operations to London (1964). The group continues to produce a Mancunian paper, the Manchester Evening News.

Papurau Bro[edit | edit source]

Papurau Bro (Area Papers) are Welsh language newspapers produced nominally monthly (typically 10 issues a year with a summer break) which cover the news in a small area -- a town, group of parishes, one or a few valleys, etc., with a circulation of perhaps a few thousand each. There are between 50 and 60 Papurau Bro which cover the whole of Wales, plus the Welsh communities of Liverpool and London. Papers are frequently named after local features, connections, crafts, etc, or in dialect (clebran, clecs, clochdar, and clonc all imply gossip). The first "papur bro" (Y Dinesydd) appeared in 1973 in Cardiff, and the following decade saw the establishment of most of the others. Much of the work of producing the papers is done voluntarily (aside from the printing), although financial support is given by Bwrdd yr Iaith (Welsh Language Board). Some of the papers listed may have ceased publication.
