The documentary, Page One is about you guessed it, a year in the life of The Times during today’s climate.

The film is interesting and easy to watch, but not illuminating by most standards. There was nothing I didn’t already know about the troubles newspapers are facing and there was a lot left out that probably would have engaged me. However, it was immersing and educational and I enjoyed the characters they chose to follow.
Page One: I recommend it for a lazy Sunday on the sofa.
