November 1-30, 2018 -- The World Agenda gives a preview of world events scheduled for November such as the U.S. midterm elections, the start of U.S. sanctions on Iran’s oil, the meeting between U.S. and Russian presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin in Paris, and the centenary of the end of the First World War.

Nov 6, U.S.: Crucial midterm elections will both kickstart the 2020 presidential race and determine whether Republicans, who hold a majority in both chambers of Congress, or Democrats benefit most at the polls from the recent and bitter fight over Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh

Nov 4, U.S.: The Trump administration is pressing U.S. allies to end Iran oil imports as further sanctions kick in. Soured by the U.S. exit from the Iran nuclear deal, key allies appear predisposed to resist

21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
