The Sunday Times is the name of several Sunday newspapers.

Contents

United Kingdom and Ireland

The Sunday Times is a Sunday broadsheet newspaper distributed in the United Kingdom and Ireland, published by News International, a subsidiary of News Corporation. News International also owns The Times and since the 1960s the two have been part of a company called Times Newspapers Limited, but they were founded independently and had never been under common ownership before then.

While its sister paper, The Times, holds a substantially smaller circulation than the other main UK quality daily, The Daily Telegraph, The Sunday Times occupies a dominant position in the Sunday broadsheet market. Other newspapers owned by News Corp include The Times, The Sun and the News of the World. News Corp also owns the Fox Network and Sky Television.

Unlike its daily sister paper, The Times, The Sunday Times has remained arguably the major Sunday newspaper. It maintains the larger broadsheet format and has announced that it will continue to do so.

It is noted for publishing the faked Hitler Diaries, believing them to be genuine. Other notable stories include:

  • Israeli Nuclear Weapons - using information from Mordechai Vanunu, The Sunday Times published the fact that Israel had manufactured more than 100 nuclear warheads.
  • Uncaring Thatcher - The Sunday Times ran a story claiming that Queen Elizabeth II was upset with the style of Margaret Thatcher's leadership. This was notable as the monarch generally maintains a strictly impartial role in UK politics.

The Sunday Times publishes the Sunday Times Rich List, an annual survey of the wealthiest people in Britain and Ireland, equivalent to the Forbes 400 list in the USA. The paper also publishes an annual league table of British universities and a similar one for Irish universities.
