We all benefit from a greater understanding of the media. Too many newspaper reviews on TV descend into debates about the stories within the newspapers. The same old issues, the same bitter and divisive attention seeking pundits, the same agendas.

In this series, hosted by Comsteria’s Colin Kelly, we aim to provide a proper, useful critique of our country’s newspapers. How do they work? What do they cover? Who are they for? What are they doing well and what could do they do better? And crucially, what do they need to do to secure readers and revenues in the years ahead?

You can support this work by sharing our programmes and telling us what you think. Contact us with any feedback. Perhaps you’d like to appear on the programme as a guest reviewer or suggest a newspaper we should cover.
