SOME OF THE BEST images from the Paralympics I've seen are in the Sunday Times Spectrum (16 September 2012) . I captured some of them in a YouTube video I made of a Sunday newsround.
The Paralympic images get less social media chatter than topless photos of Kate Middleton.  The outrage may cause the closure of th e Irish Daily Star. If that happens, there could be knock-on effects to the Irish version of the Sunday Times.
I'm very intrigued by excellent work by the historian Sonke Neitzel.  He discovered a trove of secretly recorded conversations between German POWs in British camps during the second world war. Their chatter about mass executions, rape and other atrocities has caused a sensation in Germany and now it's in hard cover in the West.
You can see my 10-minute review of the Irish Sunday news by clicking on the image above or by watching the story unfold in the YouTube clip below. The audio clip in this blog post is extracted from the video recording.
