Newspapers we should add next

  1. Tit-Bits, Answers, Pearson's Weekly, and Ally Sloper's Half Holiday

    Some of the best-selling weekly newspapers from the nineteenth century have yet to be digitised. Tit-Bits, Answers, Pearson's Weekly, and Ally Sloper's Half Holiday all sold hundreds of thousands of copies each week and had an enormous influence on Victorian culture. I occasionally tweet example from my own bound volumes of these periodicals and I've lost count of the times that people have asked me where they can find them online.

    As well as being packed with entertaining content, these papers also conducted a lot of competitions and other forms of reader interaction - this often resulted in readers' names…

    • The coverage of Scotland is excellent, but a bit of a problem is Orkney. The Orcadian would be ideal.

      The Scottish coverage is excellent, but Orkney is a bit of a problem - just a few years of the Orkney Herald. The Orcadian would be ideal.

          Martin,
          Thank you for your comment and for the information. We have investigated this within the British Library’s holdings. Unfortunately they only have positive microfilm copies available. These are the service microfilms held at St. Pancras that are for reader request. We cannot digitise from positives as they have only one copy of each reel and this must be available for reader use at all times. If you are aware of any holdings elsewhere, please do get in touch with our support team via support@britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk

          Best wishes,

          Team BNA

          • Oldham

            If population size determines ranking for digitisation then why for example is Oldham not included yet, which covers Saddleworth etc. and is many more than some of those you have done already?
