The Sun Supplements

There are several regular supplements that currently accompany the Sun. The main addition to the paper is “TV biz“, which provides the latest television news, gossip and pictures from Monday to Saturday. “Super Goals” is also included in the Monday edition of the newspaper during the football season and the “Sun Motors” pull-out is distributed with the paper on Fridays.

The Saturday edition of the Sun includes two sports supplements: “Super Goals” is featured from August to May and summarises the upcoming football matches for the weekend, “Favourite” contains information on horse racing. There is also a Saturday magazine called “TV Mag” which provides all of the listings and reviews on television programmes. To mark special occasions, the Sun often provides commemorative supplements.

Bought an original paper from 1974 for a birthday gift - the paper smelt wonderfully ‘old’. I wasn’t sure if I appreciated the half completed crossword at the end but the recipient loved it all the more for it. Fantastic to contrast house prices and salaries! Fun looking at the old ads. Loved it.
