The paper is based upon the British contribution to the Environment progamme EPOCH, 1991-1993. There are numerous difficulties in accessing, extracting, organising, databasing and analysing such data because there are not usually collated for scientific use. Despite these difficulties, such data do yield a record which adds to the representative temporal sample at a level above some threshold reporting position. It therefore has potential for specific statistical analysis. An example of a reasonable temporal landslide record is the data base of the Ventnor complex on the Isle of Wight initially established in 1991
