Media From 1900
The first edition of the Daily Express was published in Fleet Street. It was one of the first papers in Britain to carry gossip, sports, women's features and a crossword.
Their magnificent 1932 building on Fleet Street is used as a location in the 1961 film 'The Day the Earth Caught Fire'. The exteriors and the lobby scenes are shot on site; the newsroom scenes were shot on a set, carefully reconstructed from photos of the actual space.
