Cold Water Challenge

on BBC Two England

Whilst on holiday in the South of France shortly after the war, David Nations saw water ski-ing for the first time. He determined to bring the sport to this country, despite the unfavourable weather conditions here, and he established Britain's first-ever water-ski club at Ruislip Lido. Last year, after a lifetime's dedication to the sport, he had the satisfaction of coaching Mike Hazelwood to become Britain's first-ever male world champion.
