Abstract: The Times archives are a treasure trove, spanning back 80 years and thus offering a unique insight into the way local perceptions and notions concerning various issues have changed over time, if one considers The Times a reflection of contemporary society. For instance, it transpires that since 1930, the word ‘environment’ was used over 64,000 times in the newspaper, and is one of the most frequently used word in the archives. Predictably, the use of this word has increased in recent times. It was used just 61 times between 1930 and 1939, as compared to 1,575 times during 2010 alone. This confirms the ever-increasing interest in green issues.
