Wow, that's a brilliant video. I can't believe they were still still using a sixty-year-old press in 2017.

Not sure, given the precarious state of the newspaper industry then, that it would have been a good time to invest in a new print plant!

Anyone know how it panned out?

The technology that manages the colour of the colour registration and the skill to use is passeth my understanding. Those pressmen deserve medals for the grubby but important job they have been doing. It makes those who manage newspaper servers look like wimps. I hope those who take pride in doing that kind of thankless work find fulfilment when the wimps take over their jobs.
