Direction of writing

My chinese writing and reading skills are not that great yet but watching an old martial arts film the other night I started to wonder about the direction of the writing.

On CPod and places like XinHua the writing is all done left to right.  Is this always the case or does it vary and if it varies are you just expected to work it out or is there some clue?
