Introducing Breaking The News

An Introduction to our newest exhibition, Breaking the News.

News has the power to make and break elections. We base our opinions, decisions and arguments on it. It shapes the world around us – and the way we make sense of it. But what makes the news where you live? And how does a local story become a headline grabber?

The displays in libraries across the UK run alongside Breaking the News, a major new exhibition at the British Library from 22 April to 21 August 2022. Explore the full programme of events, workshops, talks and more at a library near you.
