A Parallel Press

Though not directly related to the production of Enquirer, this was filmed at the premises of the company who printed the programme. William Anderson & Sons is a family-run printing business founded in 1865 and based in Govan, Glasgow. The company has found strength by embracing new technologies, while preserving the skills of traditional book-binding and typesetting.

The kind of press (litho) that Anderson’s runs is different from a newspaper (web) press but the film offers an oblique insight into an industry facing its own challenges in the digital age.
