A podcast based on oral history interviews with former printers and journalists. It covers the post-war heyday of Fleet Street as the home of the British newspaper industry up to the Wapping dispute which heralded a new era. 

Episode 1 explores the reasons people chose to work in the print, their apprenticeships and their early days in the many different jobs and tasks required to publish a newspaper.

The interviews were collected by children from St Matthew’s and St George The Martyr Primary schools as part of a project supported by St Bride Institute and the News International Dispute Archive.
