SCOOP! THE TRUE, INSIDE STORY OF TV CENTURY 21...
Okay, so I lied - about being 'true' I mean. What you're looking at
is a fictional account from the TV CENTURY 21 Annual for 1969
about how the 'newspaper' came into being. It gets its facts wrong from
the start, saying that the first edition rolled off the presses on January
27th 2065 - even 'though its clearly dated January 23rd. Note also
the bit about the periodical being expected to be selling in the same high
numbers in ten years as it did initially - 'though it was highly likely to be
showing signs of falling circulation at the time this piece was written.
So, not much truth about it, but interesting nonetheless. Like to
see more from the TV21 Annuals? Then let me know, pilgrims!
