Time travel back to 1970 to see how a newspaper is made

This 15-minute film from 1970 about the San Jose Mercury News takes you through all the steps of printing a modern newspaper.

This film would make a great drinking game. You’ve got to take a drink every time they show someone who’s probably a union stiff and you’ve got to chug where they show a job that doesn’t exist any more. On second thought, maybe it wouldn’t be such a great game…

Millennials may find this all a hoot — but some of this stuff was the high-tech of its day. They should take warning; 42 years from now the whippersnappers are going to be laughing about your iPhone and iPad and everything else that you think is cool and modern now.
