The paper has recently undergone a redesign and its content appears in six colour-coded sections: That's real life, Entertainment, Lifestyle, Prizes/puzzles, Short stories and Sport. It is also well regarded for its cartoon content. The paper has three offices - Dundee (head), Glasgow and Manchester - and its Editor is Donald Martin.
