90,000 Newspapers and magazines in England

Newspapers and magazines were the first mass media. However, earlier newspaper circulation was limited by the possibilities of their transportation and distribution, illiteracy of the population and censorship. But over the past two centuries, an expanded educational system, de-censorship, new printing technologies and the small size of the UK have eradicated these difficulties and created an independent print media system.

The rise in literacy after 1870 provided newspaper owners with a rapidly growing market.This led to an increase in the popularity of newspapers and magazines, which were previously available only to the middle and class and high society. Print media began to be used not only for news, information and communication, but also for entertainment, which inevitably led to an increase in the income of newspaper owners. New varieties of print media developed rapidly in a fertile atmosphere of competition in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, fueled by the development of advertising. Print owners have also realized the political and social role a newspaper or magazine can play.


The nationwide newspapers in the UK are newspapers that are delivered to all regions of the country on the same day, including weekends. Most newspapers are delivered directly to the subscriber’s doorstep by postmen. The well-developed internal transport and communications system of a relatively small country has allowed a unique national print media system to develop, as opposed to a situation where the sheer size and geography of a country is often the main obstacle.

The first British newspapers with a circulation sufficient for the literate population of the entire country appeared in the early eighteenth century, followed by newspapers such as The Times (1785), The Observer (1791) and The Sunday Times. (1822). But most of these newspapers were newspapers targeting Britain’s relatively small, educated population, concentrated mainly in London.

In the nineteenth century, population growth and composition determined the types of newspapers published.The first nationwide popular newspapers were deliberately printed on Sundays, such as News of the World (1843) and People (1881). They were cheap and designed for the growing literate working class. In 1896, Alfred Harmsworth began printing the Daily Mail, which targeted the lower middle class and served as a more affordable substitute for “quality” newspapers for the high society. Harmsworth then launched the Daily Mirror in 1903, which targeted the working class, a highly popular market.Both newspapers were soon selling over a million copies a day.

The early twentieth century was the era of mass circulation newspapers and dynasties of newspaper owners such as Narmsworth and Arthur Pearson. There was fierce competition between them for a large market share. Pearson’s Morning Herald, which was later renamed the Daily Express, was formed in 1900 to compete with the Daily Mail for the lower middle class market. The Daily Express later changed direction, becoming a working-class newspaper in the 1950s to attract more readers.

The Daily Mirror became the nation’s best-selling newspaper in the early twentieth century. It was an active supporter of the Labor Party and was specifically designed to be read quickly and easily by readers from the working class, which was quickly becoming politicized. The Daily Herald (1911) also supported the Labor Party before it changed hands in 1964, was renamed the Sun, and significantly changed the views on political and social life in the country.The competition between Sun, Express and Mirror continues to this day: each newspaper wants to capture a large share of the yellow press market. There are still battles between newspaper owners, who are now huge corporations or publishing houses.

The difference between today and the early twentieth century lies perhaps in the quality of popular newspapers. The success of the early popular press was partly due to an increase in the literacy of the population, partly the true thirst for knowledge and information that the working class felt, and partly the increased political literacy among workers created by the rise of the Labor Party.Newspaper owners have obviously made significant profits in such a huge market, but they have also provided for the need. The price and content of mainstream newspapers were calculated for the lower middle class and the working class. This trend attracted a large number of advertisers, and newspaper owners could print newspapers inexpensively using modern printing techniques and a ubiquitous distribution system.

Nationwide newspaper circulation increased significantly in the early twentieth century, and it is known that by 1920, about 5.5 million newspapers were sold daily in the country.By 1973, that figure had increased to 17 million. But newspapers and other print media had to compete first with radio and film, and later with television. Although they survived with significant circulation, there has been a steady decline in daily sales of national and other newspapers since the early 1970s. Circulation of some newspapers remained constant, while others either increased or decreased in the grip of fierce competition, as a result of which some newspapers were closed.

However, more newspapers are sold per capita in the UK than in any other country.It is known that two out of three people over 15 years old read the national daily newspaper, and almost three out of four people read the Sunday newspaper. National newspapers have a circulation of about 14 million on weekdays and about 17 million on Sundays, although the total number of readers (family members, etc.) is much larger than the numbers provided.

The UK’s national press, with 11 daily newspapers and 10 Sunday newspapers, is based in London, where both newspaper offices and printing presses are located.Most of these were previously located on Fleet Street in central London, a street that was the center of the national print industry. But now all the newspapers have left this street, moving to other areas of London, for example, the docks or even outside London. The reasons for this relocation were high rentals of premises, fierce competition and rejection of new printing technologies by trade unions.

In the 1970s and 1980s, all newspapers and magazines had to adjust to rising production costs and technological improvements in the printing industry and office management.The expenses associated with these events had to be “swallowed” during the struggle for a place in the market.

Large labor costs in the printing industry have often been attributed to the large number of redundant workers and the protective action of trade unions, especially in London. This situation has forced newspaper owners to look at new ways to increase labor productivity while reducing costs. Using new printing technology to accelerate this process led to job cuts and union opposition, which in turn led to dire production losses.The new methods allow journalists to submit articles to print without the old way of typing the text. This important change means owners now have more flexibility in their printing and distribution methods, as well as lower costs. The new methods also allowed them to avoid the former dominance of trade unions and the concentration of production in London.

Regional newspaper owners outside London are pioneers in putting new technologies into practice.They eventually forced the London printing industry to follow suit. The Times tried to install new equipment but was not allowed to do so by the union. The newspaper was closed for 11 months (1979-80) in an attempt to pressure trade unions, but this attempt failed. The newspaper was then sold to a new owner, who, after protracted union problems, fired all printers and moved the newspaper and its other newspapers to east London. Then he recruited only those workers who were willing to work with the new equipment.These actions were not accepted by the union, whose members were picketing the new plant. But other newspapers were forced to follow The Times’ lead in order to survive.

New printing technology, improved distribution system and lower production costs have increased the profitability of the press and the printing industry as a whole. Despite the competition with other media, the market for newspapers and printed products is still growing. Ethnic minorities in the UK, for example, print their own newspapers and magazines, whose circulation is growing and the quality is improving.Among many others, a large number of Jewish, Asian, Indian, Chinese and Arab newspapers are published.

An emphasis on information technology and news gathering provided the background for the 1984 sale of Reuters to private owners. Reuters is a London-based news agency founded in 1851 that is traditionally used as a news source by newspapers and journalists.

The print market is still competitive and newspapers can suffer from a variety of difficulties.But even the significant risk did not deter those who decided to create new newspapers. For example, the new newspaper “Today” was published in April 1986, and continues to be published after serious difficulties with circulation and technology. A new “quality” newspaper, The Independent, appeared in October 1986 and has survived despite declining circulation. Sunday newspapers such as The Independent on Sunday (1990), together with Friday’s European, have successfully launched and continue to appear. But a number of other newspapers that have opened over the years have also quickly closed.

National newspapers are usually classified as “quality” and “popular” according to their format and content. “Quality” newspapers are published on large format sheets, write in detail about national or international news, analyze current events in politics and culture in articles and notes. “Popular” newspapers are published on small format sheets, broadcast relatively little actual news, and mainly publish sensational or scandalous materials.The vocabulary of such newspapers is very limited, the emphasis is on quick reading of the material. This is not to say that popular newspapers are worried about the intellectual and psychological state of their readers. But newspaper owners and editors often argue that their readers demand a particular style of writing, interests, and attitudes.

The circulations and sales of popular newspapers significantly exceed the indicators of “quality” competitors, both Sunday and daily.Quality newspapers are more expensive than popular newspapers and have rich advertisers, which allows you to profit from them. Popular newspapers print fewer advertisements, but have a larger circulation. National newspapers in 1992 took almost 15% of all advertising money in the country.

The British press, which is financially independent of political parties, is often accused of conciliation and the expression of the same views. But this is not so: in fact, it covers the various political interests of society.

The Morning Star, an independent Marxist newspaper associated with the British Communist Party, promotes its political philosophy but has a very modest circulation. Most other newspapers also have strong political views and may support a particular political party, especially during the election campaign. It is often argued that the vast majority of British newspapers are center-right and sympathetic to the Conservative Party.Some, such as the Mirror, support the Labor Party, others, such as The Times and The Independent, consider themselves independent newspapers, and still others, like the Guardian, sympathize with the center-left parties.

In practice, the British get a wide variety of views on current events from newspapers. There is no control or censorship of the press, although there are unwritten laws of the genre with which the press tries to regulate itself and its behavior.

Since the press does not receive any subsidies from the state, it depends on its circulation, on the advertisers it can attract and on the financial assistance of the owners.A newspaper can be in serious trouble if advertisers do not fund it. But large circulations do not necessarily guarantee the required number of advertisers and, therefore, the state of the newspaper, because nowadays advertisers are paying more attention to television, where they can benefit from a wider audience. Most popular newspapers, which do not make a lot of advertising revenue, are constantly competing with their rivals to increase their sales. They use tricks like charades and contests, price cuts, or clear editorial policies designed to attract large readership.Owners can refuse to help unprofitable newspapers. Many newspapers in the twentieth century ceased publication due to declining circulation, loss of advertisers, denial of financial aid, and a combination of the three.


Regional or provincial newspapers are newspapers that appear outside London. Excluding the nationwide printing industry, London itself has one major newspaper, the Evening Standard, with a daily circulation of about 476,000, in addition to about 100 local weeklies, dailies and evening papers in the Greater London boroughs.

Outside London, a large number of regional newspapers are published in cities and towns. They contain a mixture of local and government news and are supported by local advertisers. The regional press is the second largest advertising market after television. In 1992, it accounted for 21% of the total advertising market in the UK.

Some of the best-known local newspapers, such as The Scotsman (Edinburgh) and the Glasgow Herald in Scotland, the Western Mail in Cardiff, Wales and the Yorkshire Post (Leeds) in England, have a solid reputation and great circulation not only in your region, but throughout the country.

The relatively recent rise in free newspapers in the regions, usually published by local printers and funded by local advertisers, indicates a new trend in newspaper publishing. In these newspapers, the number of advertisements far exceeds the number of articles; however, the weekly circulation of these newspapers is estimated at 35 million copies.


There are over 7 thousand different periodicals and magazines in the UK, which are published weekly, monthly or quarterly.They cover the vast majority of business interests, professions, sports, hobbies and interests, and target a variety of markets and educational levels. It is very difficult to break into this established market with something new. Some attempts, of course, may be successful, but the vast majority do not succeed. For example, color picture news magazines do not exist in the UK because they could not compete with television and existing magazines.

Among the main serious weekly magazines are “New Statesman and Society” (political journal of the left parties, which also comments on events in society), “Economist” (economics magazine) “Spectator” (conservative magazine) and “New Scientist”.The Times publishes several influential weeklies such as Educational Supplement, Higher Education Supplement and Literary Supplement. A less serious part of the market is filled with publications such as Private Eye, which ridicules and attacks what it considers to be the flaws of British society.

Competition in the market for magazines for women and teenagers is very fierce. Very few new projects survive the first few releases. Women’s magazines such as “Woman” and “Woman’s Own” sell very large circulations.But the weekly “Radio Times” and “TV Times”, which contain articles and timetables for the BBC and independent television, are gaining record circulations. Other magazines cover a variety of interests such as computers, travel, gardening, railways, architecture, and more.

Dodo Pizza opened the first fast-gourmet pizzeria in the UK

17 December 2020, 05:12

Fedor Ovchinnikov’s company Dodo Brands has opened the first corporate outlet of Dodo Pizza in the UK.Prior to that, there were four franchise enterprises operating in the country: one in Brighton, which opened back in 2017, one in Coventry and two in Walsall. The company plans to open up to 50 locations in the UK by 2023.

The new pizzeria is located in the resort town in the central part of England Leamington Spa. It will only work for delivery and takeaway.

The main difference between the restaurant and other Dodo outlets in the country lies in the updated concept. Here they will cook gourmet pizza on the Roman air dough with original toppings.“In the UK there is a developed market for food delivery in general, and specifically for the pizza market. First of all, we plan to build up at the expense of an unusual, higher quality product, ”says Ekaterina Landyreva, leader of the project for launching the first corporate Dodo Pizza in Great Britain. – We use ingredients that you don’t expect to see in pizza: for example, pizza with lobster and mango, which is unusual, but insanely delicious. And at the same time it will be accessible. ”

The restaurant menu has three thematic sections of pizza: classic (for example, Queen Margarita, The Six Cheese, Double Pepperoni), refined (Portobello and truffle, Oh my Goat – with goat cheese) , branded (“Lobster and mango”, “K-Pep” – with kimchi and shichimi togarashi).The pizza is prepared in two sizes: small and medium. Prices range from £ 5.99 to £ 11.99. In addition, there are snacks, soft drinks, beer, cider, wine and ice cream on the menu.

The time in the oven for a Roman pizza is 2.5 minutes, while for a regular one it is 4.5 minutes. Due to this, the delivery time will be reduced: the pizza will be delivered in less than 30 minutes. “In the UK market, speed is important and we are cutting delivery times. We will try to gain time due to the efficiency of operational processes and bicycle deliveries, ”adds Ekaterina Landyreva.At the same time, Dodo will not cooperate with local food delivery aggregators. It will be possible to place an order on the website or through an application developed on the basis of the Dodo IS platform.

Under the concept at Leamington Spa, Dodo has developed a new visual communication style to meet the high design standards adopted in the UK. The Russian agency The Clients worked on the identity. Castdev research was done by UXSSR.

“At the first, strategic stage, an important insight was found – the United Kingdom is now more divided than ever before.And pizza is a product that absolutely everyone loves, uniting people with any worldview, political views or sports preferences. This is how the idea of ​​unification appeared, which ran like a red thread through the entire style, – comments the design director of The Clients Liza Kapysh. – We were inspired by radically opposite visual codes. On the one hand, there is a friendly, playful style with naive illustrations. On the other hand, it is laconic, based on elegant typography, inspired by the aesthetics of “classic” restaurants.Our challenge was to combine these two realities in one design to convey the concept of fast gourmet. ” Kapysh compares the resulting style to the facade of a traditional British house, painted with graffiti.

In 2021, Dodo Pizza plans to launch five new fast-gourmet restaurants in the region: in Banbury, Oxford, Warwick, Cheltenham Spa or Stratford-upon-Avon. The dough for the new establishments will be supplied from a pizzeria in Leamington Spa.

Sales of the fast gourmet concept franchise are scheduled for early 2022, after format testing has been completed.By 2023, Dodo Pizza plans to open up to 50 pizzerias in the UK. “In the next few years, we want to focus on development in the UK,” says Fyodor Ovchinnikov, founder and CEO of Dodo Brands. – This is one of the largest pizza delivery markets in Europe. Yes, the market is highly competitive, but we are confident that there is room for new players. We see great potential both in the market and in our new product ”.

90,000: Technology and media :: RBK

The owner of Vokrug Sveta, Sergei Vasiliev, is ready to sell the magazine to Viktor Shkulev and the American Hearst.If the deal does not go through, the publication will be closed

Photo: Dmitry Feoktistov / TASS

The management of the publishing house “Vokrug Sveta” decided to temporarily suspend the release of the paper version of the magazine of the same name “due to the systematic reduction of the print media market,” Svetlana Golovatyuk, the general director of the publishing house, told RBC.At the same time, she added that the publishing house is negotiating the sale of Vokrug Sveta so that the magazine can still be published in the year of its 160th anniversary.

Negotiations on the sale are underway with the Hearst Shkulev Group, which is 80% owned by Viktor Shkulev and 20% by the American company Hearst, Golovatyuk specified. Shkulev, in turn, told RBC that “Around the World” will be published further, the next issue will be released in February 2021 – “the magazine has good prospects.” Shkulev did not comment on the very fact of the negotiations.An RBC source close to Vokrug Sveta assures that negotiations are at the final stage.

The current owner of Vokrug Sveta is Sergei Vasiliev, chairman of the board of directors of the National Advertising Alliance, a seller of advertisements on almost all Russian TV. Previously, Vasiliev was the general director of both the alliance itself and the Video International group, on the basis of which a single seller of TV advertising was created.

On Tuesday, December 1, Vasiliev told RBC that he decided to stop publishing Vokrug Sveta in 2021: “print media in today’s world can only survive in a large flock”.

“Around the World” publishes materials about travel, historical events, scientific discoveries and technical achievements. In 2012, it received the status of the official journal of the Russian Geographical Society, whose board of trustees is chaired by President Vladimir Putin.

90,000 UK Marketplaces. Top 20 online export sites.

Where to sell your products in England? What international and local UK marketplaces may be available to foreign sellers? We have prepared a database of key marketplaces working for both the domestic and foreign markets.

In this review, we will not dwell on Amazon, Ebay, Etsy or Zalando, this is a separate topic that we will cover in a separate article. Let’s focus on sites that you may not have heard of before, but that have great potential for your export business.

What is the advantage of UK online marketplaces?

Great Britain is a global brand, 87% of respondents worldwide indicated that without hesitation they would buy products from an online store from England.Trust is the main engine of international e-commerce, so more and more often we come across strategies when the global expansion of brands starts with Foggy Albion.

And if you want to initially capture a wider global audience then UK marketplaces will be the perfect element in your strategy. Because you get not only the attention of local consumers but also access to a large share of buyers all over the world.

A special category that develops thanks to foreign marketplaces is household goods and furniture, in particular, the most active world platforms have a very large share in the British market and invest hundreds of millions of dollars in promotion domestically:


Influence of American platforms

For us, this is a happy opportunity to hear world-famous British musicians.

Peter Donohoe is recognized as one of the foremost pianists of our time for his musicality, stylistic sensitivity and technique. After graduating from the Royal Northern College of Music, he improved his skills in Paris with Olivier Messiaen and Yvonne Loriot.Donohoe gained wide popularity after he shared the 2nd prize in the 1982 competition.

The discs of the band were marked as “Best Record of the Year” by Gramophone magazine. Next year the Sacconi Quartet celebrates its 20th anniversary. He is the initiator of the Folkestone Festival, one of the UK’s largest chamber music festivals.The artists of the quartet are holding two violins and a viola by our contemporary – Simon Fernando Sacconi. The name “Sacconi Quartet” is a token of gratitude to an outstanding Italian master and restorer. As part of the Year of Music, the quartet will debut in Russia.

Sacconi Quartet:

Violin – Ben Hancox
Violin – Hannah Dawson
Viola – Robin Ashwell
Cello – Kara Barridge

The award-winning Sacconi quartet is renowned for its unanimous and compelling ensemble, constantly engaging with a fresh and creative approach.Having formed the collective in 2001, its four founders continue to demonstrate a shared passion for the string quartet repertoire, infecting audiences with their energy and enthusiasm.

In the summer of 2015, the quartet launched HEARTFELT (, their most innovative project to date. A radical interpretation of Beethoven’s iconic string quartet (minor opus 132) pushed the boundaries of chamber music by combining sound, light and feeling for a truly unique performance, in which the audience connects to each performer’s heartbeat through robotic “hearts” Developed in a unique collaboration with robotics designers Rusty Squid and lighting designer Ziggy Jacobs-Wyburn, funded by the Arts Council England, HEARTFELT received excellent reviews from The Guardian and The Independent and was described by the latter as “a powerful way to experience the inner physics of Beethoven’s deep thanksgiving.”

The name Sacconi Quartet comes from the eminent Italian artist and restorer of the twentieth century Simone Sacconi, whose book The Secrets of the Stradivarius is considered an indispensable reference for violin makers. Ben Hancox plays the 1932 Sacconi violin and Robin Ashwell the 1934 Sacconi viola, both made in New York. Hannah Dawson has played the 1927 Sacconi violin made in Rome, and Cara Berridge has played the cello by Nicolai Galliano since 1781.
