Newspaper Publishing

On a tour of a newspaper publisher, after watching a video of the newspaper production process from gathering material for a news item through to printing, you see the process of making-up pages on a computer, high-speed offset rotary presses at work and the distribution process after automatic wrapping. Some companies offer newspaper-related souvenirs by which to remember your visit.
