Introduction

The Penguin News was started by Graham Bound and produced in a roneod/Gestetner format at varying intervals and in varying sizes in the early years. From July 1988 it was produced in a proper printed format and the Falkland Islands Government took over Graham Bound’s interest in the paper.

The March 1989 issue announced the government takeover of the paper. The Penguin News at that point was a wholly owned subsidiary of Seamount Limited which was wound up by FIG who put forward a rescue package for the paper and set up The Media Trust to administer an annual grant to cover running costs. In October 1989 a four page general election special was issued and from November 1989 the Penguin News was published regularly.

The paper covers mainly local topics with the inclusion of international news that affects the Falkland Islands.

Copies of the Penguin News are also held in the Community Library.

Period Covered: 3 October 1979 to Current Day. Status: Complete
