Unit forty seven
The British are a nation of newspaper readers. Many of them have a daily paper delivered to their home just in time for bieakfast.
British newspapers can be divided into two groups: quality and popular. Quality newspapers are more serious and cover home and foreign news thoughtfully while the popular newspapers like shocking, personal stories as well as some news. These two groups of newspapers can be distinguished easily because the quality papers are twice the size of the popular newspapers.
• Quality daily newspapers:
The Daily Telegraph
The Financial Times
• Quality Sunday newspapers:
The Sunday Times
The Sunday Telegraph
• Popular daily newspapers:
The News of the World
The Mail on Sunday
The Sunday Mirror
The Sunday Express
British newspapers are often associated with Fleet Street, located in Westminster City of London. Fleet Street was the home of the nation's newspapers till the recent past. But not long ago practically all the newspapers moved their headquarters to Docklands, a newly developed business centre in the eastern part of London. Only two newspapers The Daily Express and The Daily Telegraph are still in Fleet Street. However, people still say 'Fleet Street' to mean 'the press'.
Watching television is one of the great British pastimes! Broadcasting in the United Kingdom is controlled by the British Broadcasting Corporation (ВВС) and the Independent Broadcasting Authority (IBA). The ВВС receives its income from the Government, but the private companies controlled by the IBA earn money from advertising. The ВВС has two TV channels. The IBA is responsible for looking after the regional independent TV companies who broadcast their own programmes and those they have bought from other regions.
National radio is controlled by the ВВС, and listeners can choose between four stations. There are many local stations, some private and some run by theВВС. Their programmes consist mainly of music and local news.
