The Archers in 2007
As it's my last day in the office so I've been playing with some visualisations of the Archers! The Archers website has surprisingly detailed synopses of each episode, and a very comprehensive archive dating back several years. So I decided to grab all the synopses for the past year and then processed them by removing any common words (e.g. "the", "and" etc.). Then I had a go doing some visualisation of the data.
We have the most frequently mentioned characters...
Size is proportional to the number of mentions through the year.
And I've also done the most frequently mentioned characters for each month. You can see who the storylines were about from this one.
Then some places...
Size is again proportional to frequency. Because I'm splitting everything up into single words some things have been split, like "Lower" and "Loxley".
Then the rest of the words. I quite like this one, lots of going and saying and telling.
And you can download the data file of the most frequent words if you want to have a play yourself.
