Trial access – Telegraph Historical Archive, 1855-2000

Until 21st November, we have trial access to the Telegraph Historical Archive.

Researchers and students can perform a full text search across 1 million pages of the newspaper’s backfile from its first issue to the end of 2000, including issues of the Sunday Telegraph from 1961.

Over on the Gale blog, the content creation team have compiled 8 reasons to help you decide if you should look into this resource. You’ll also find a number of essays to download, including:

  • “Playing Fair”: Winston Churchill’s Relationship with The Telegraph, by Dr A. Warren Dockter, University of Cambridge
  • George Augustus Sala: The Telegraph’s Greatest Special Correspondent, by Dr Peter Blake, University of Brighton
  • Business, Bribery and the Broadsheets: Researching Companies and Industry with The Daily Telegraph, by Dr James Nye, King’s College London
  • “The Greatest War Correspondent of the Twentieth Century”: Ellis Ashmead-Bartlett and The Daily Telegraph, by Dr Jenny Macleod, University of Hull
