BRIAN BASS spent his entire working life in journalism. He joined the Peterborough Advertiser on leaving school, moved to the Boston Guardian and Ilkeston Pioneer before joining the Sunday Mercury in Birmingham. Three years in Manchester on the Express and Mail preceded his move to the Daily Mail in London. For 28 years until retirement, he worked on the Daily Mirror as sub-editor, associate night editor, production editor and features editor. Since 1993, during a parallel freelance career, he has designed and edited dozens of corporate newspapers and magazines, including the Journalists’ Charity newsletter. For ten years or so from 2002 he was managing editor of British Journalism Review, and still serves on the journal’s management board. Now he is taking it easy, offering occasional technical assistance on the AMP’s newsletters to his wife, Caro.
