Synopsis

The essays in Northcliffe's Legacy explore the popular press since 1896 - from Harmsworth's Daily Mail to Maxwell's Mirror . Topics include: the sorry tale of the Daily Herald; early dealings with the BBC; the role of photojournalism; the contribution of Reuters; and the roots of financial journalism for a mass market. The history of the popular press has always been about more than big headlines and big profit margins, as this volume successfully demonstrates.
