It was provincial owners outside London who pioneered the movement of newspapers and magazines into the new printing technology. They eventually forced the London national newspaper industry to follow. Ruper Murdoch's News International Group led the 'revolution' in London. The Times had tried to introduce new equipment, but was prevented by union opposition. The paper was closed down for eleven months (1979-80) in an attempt to put pressure on the unions, but this also failed. The paper was then sold to Murdoch, who has substantial newspaper and media holdings in Britain, Australia and USA. After further problems with the unions, Murdoch sacked his printers, and moved The Times and his other papers from Fleet Street to high technology facilities at Wapping in East London. He then employed only those workers who were prepared to operate the new machinery. Other Fleet Street and regional newspapers have had to follow the lead in order to survive.

The new printing technology, improved distribution techniques, and the cutting of labour and production costs have increased the profitability of the press and the print industry as a whole. Despite the competition with other media sources, there still seems to be a considerable future for the print industries. The emphasis upon information technology, news gathering and data dispersal also provided an impetus to the public sale of Reuters to private shareholders in 1984. Reuters is a London-based news agency (founded in 1851), which has traditionally been used by newspapers and journalists worldwide as a source of news.
