The Sunday Telegraph is a British broadsheet newspaper, founded in February 1961. It is the sister paper of The Daily Telegraph, but is run separately with a different editorial staff, although there is some cross-usage of stories. The paper was launched following the loss of the contract to use the daily paper's presses to produce The Sunday Times.
Peregrine Worsthorne is the paper's best known journalist, and was associated with the title from 1961 to 1997, including being editor for three years from 1986 to 1989.
In 1989, the Sunday title was briefly merged into a seven-day operation under Max Hastings's overall control.
In 2005, under the editorship of Sarah Sands, the paper was revamped, a glossy fashion magazine being added to the more traditional review section. The masthead was changed, but following her dismissal it was returned to its gothic style.
Every year, the paper publishes a list of Britain's top 100 private companies entitled Top Track 100.
