Due South Magazine

Due South was the name of a British Listings magazine which covered the cities of Southampton, Bournemouth, Portsmouth and Winchester.

Due South was among a number of provincial "What's On"/Entertainment listings magazines produced during the late 1970s and early 1980s in a similar style to London's Time Out, City Limits and Event magazines. Other key regional listings magazines launched in the same period which formed a loose association with Due South included Manchesters City Life, Bristol's Venue (magazine), The List which covered Glasgow and Edinburgh and Dublin's In Dublin.

Due South was produced fortnightly between 1981 and 1990. Originally the magazine began as a co-operative and was founded in Southampton by art student Mark Ovenden who became the magazines editor and book publisher Roger Hardingham. It went through various incarnations including a freesheet before settling down for several years as a limited company. The second editor was Sally O'Shaungnessy who had begun working on the magazine as a freelance contributor to the Arts pages. The magazine featured on BBC Radio 1s Newsbeat, TVSs 'Coast to Coast' and in the Southampton Evening Echo. The Echo was at that stage the dominant force in local publishing and had a generally conservative outlook. Due South was the first credible widely distributed consumer magazine with an alternative, generally leftist politics.
