    times

    Dear all,

    What is meant by the word "times" in:

    "In this episode we'll examine the lives and times of the Nigerian footballers who have played in Englandís Premier League"

    It's confusing here.

    Thanks a lot.

    Not a teacher only a native.

    'Life and times' are words that often go together. They describe the life of a person/people (a biography) and the events that were occuring when they lived (times). So in your context, the episode will look at the lives of Nigerian footballers who moved to England to play in the the Premier League. For example, the programme may look at the issue of race.
