The Sunday Times Digital Archive provides access to the full text of the paper from 1822-2006. The paper has consistently provided thoughtful analysis and commentary on the week`s news and society at large. Murder, theatre, sport and politics-all collide in its pages in an abundance of colorful detail. In the nineteenth century, The Sunday Times had similar obsessions to much of the Victorian press, with extensive coverage of court cases, executions and grisly crimes to titillate its readers. However, it also developed a reputation for its considerable arts coverage, especially the London theatre and music scene. In the twentieth century, the newspaper returned to its founding ethos of holding the powerful to account. In 1963, it formed the Insight Team, which became world famous for cutting-edge investigative journalism. The Insight Team broke many of the key stories of the twentieth century, including a decade-long campaign for the victims of thalidomide, the exposure of Kim Philby as a Soviet double agent (1st October 1967), and the revelations about the Israeli nuclear weapons programme (5th October 1986). Articles from the Insight Team have been categorized with the label "Insight" in the archive.
