As Brexit reaches fever-pitch, The Herald and National titles are launching new Sunday versions and covering a major political story.

One newsroom. Three very different newspapers. Our cameras follow The Herald, The National and Evening Times as they battle to cover one of the biggest political stories of a generation – Brexit. These Scottish titles, one of them the world’s longest-surviving English-language daily, face their own existential battle, during the transition from print to digital. They are fighting to stay relevant to their readers at a time of intense competitive pressure. What is the impact of all this on editors and reporters as they struggle on all fronts to cover news and deliver it to an audience whose drift from print to the screen has become a digital flood?

As Brexit reaches fever-pitch, The Herald and National titles are launching new Sunday versions and covering a major political story, while budgets are cut and resources become stretched.
