BOOKS

Journalism: truth or dare? by Ian Hargreaves

Price: £12.99 hardback

Publisher: Oxford University Press

Is journalism the ‘first draft of history’ or a dumbing-down of our culture and the glorification of the trivial and intrusive? Hargreaves examines the varied roles of the journalist and looks at how information is filtered down to the reader.

Publisher: TRMG Ltd

Price: £3.25

Following the purchase of Organic Life Magazine by TRMG Ltd in February, this previously bi-monthly food magazine has been renamed and refocused to reflect the expanding nature of the organic market. Food will remain a high priority, but the emphasis has widened to include other lifestyle areas. Editor Francois Prins says: “We will be bringing a whole range of inspiring features on food, interiors, travel, exercise, health and beauty that make women feel naturally better.” The design of the magazine had also been revamped. Editorial and commercial manager –and previous owner –Anthony Rainbow says: “It’s always difficult to change everything when it’s your own baby, but I’m delighted with how it’s turned out.”
