UNDERCURRENTS is designed and edited by Sally and Godfrey Boyle. Pat Coyne edited the News, and Tony Durham edited the Reviews and took pictures. Peter Harper was editor-without-portfolio. Typesetting was by Jenny Pennings, pictures were processed by Julian Stapleton on Time Out’s camera, and Joy Watt handled the subscriptions, distribution and promotion before dropping out to make her contribution to the population explosion (a girl).
Chris Hutton-Squire grappled manfully with the balance sheets and cash flow figures, and the people at Metro grappled personfully with the rising tide of mail. Martin lnce did astronomical work, Barbara Kern drew the nice diagrams, Gavin Browning turned us on to SF, and Charlie Clutterbuck fearlessly sought out pollution. Support, both moral and practical, came from many quarters: David Gardiner, Pat Rivers, Sooty, Geoff Watts, Lance and Penny Sucharov, Ian Hogan, Steve Boulter, John Wood, Cliff Harper, Lyn Gambles, and Robin Hall are a few among the dozens who deserve and have our grateful thanks.
Undercurrents is published every two months (well, almost) by Undercurrents Limited, 275 Finchley Road, London NW3, England – a democratic, non-profit company without share capital and limited by Guarantee. Printed by SW Litho, Corbridge Crescent, London E2. Registered (no doubt) as a subversive periodical at the Post Office.

CRASH STOP PRESS
Irish TV ran a documentary on the Viscount crash on June 18, and Hibernia did a similar story on June 21. Latest reports suggest that new-found wing is from a UK pilotless drone. It’s at times like these you regret that Undercurrents takes two weeks to print.
