Admin HistoryFollowing its successful launch in January 1967, Gemini quickly expanded and diversified its operations. In 1968, Gemini established GeminiScan, a design and publishing company, which produced educational datakits displaying complex information in an easily understandable form, and supplied graphics to accompany Gemini articles. In 1969, Gemini took control of African Buyer and Trader, and re-styled its principle publication, African Development, into a popular monthly magazine. In the 1970s, following a prolonged period of severe financial difficulty cumulating in the take over of the Service by the Guardian newspaper in 1973, Gemini was forced to sell its shares in and eventually fully separate from its subsidiary companies.
