The Country Editor
Since the war a great number of papers - especially in the Provinces - have had to choose between selling out to one of the big newspaper combines or shutting down altogether. Tonight we take our outside-broadcast cameras to a paper, printed weekly at Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire which is one of the lucky few which has been able to survive - and prosper - without being forced into this choice. Or has luck really had anything to do with it?
Editor and one-third owner is thirty-seven-year-old Herbert Thomas, Since he took over circulation has gone up by leaps and bounds until now it is in excess of 20,000. His readers are about equally split between those working in industry and those in agriculture. Some speak English, some speak Welsh, some are in the booming tourist industry, some in the declining fishing trade. But whatever their interest he claims that a copy of his newspaper goes into almost every home in the area.
Circulation is not the only measure of a county paper's success. In many ways the advertisements are a more important guide; without them the paper would flounder. And the responsibility for looking after the paper's business affairs rests with the editor's brother. He,too, is one-third owner of the paper. And is the brothers' mother.
Nearly a quarter of the staff of fifty has been with the paper over twenty years. How is a county newspaper run? What influence can it hope to have? Why has this privately owned paper not only built up a growing readership but also been able to keep an amazingly faithful staff? These, and other questions, will be put to Mr. Thomas in tonight's All Sorts to Make a World.
