: Man Alive: Take Off Your Clothes and Live

Achievement... Happiness... Tragedy... Stress...
A weekly programme which focuses on people and the situations which shape their lives
Reporters: Jim Douglas Henry, Angela Huth, Jeremy James, John Percival, Desmond Wilcox, Harold Williamson
This week: Take Off Your Clothes and Live
There are now 12,000 registered members in nudist clubs in Britain today - their numbers are on the increase. And the number of clubs catering for them has nearly doubled in the past five years; clubs where they can pitch their tents, park their caravans, or just take off their clothes.
The fantasy is familiar: the sea, the sand, and a body tanned by the blazing sun; but reality lies a good distance off. Nudism in this country is more likely to mean a wet weekend in Cheshire or a chilly day near St. Albans. But die-hard nudists are not easy to deter. They come in all shapes and sizes. Some families even live permanently in nudist colonies.
This summer more applications than ever before have been made by groups of nudists to use beaches and swimming pools to prove their point. Exercise keeps the cold out. If it rains we don't spoil our clothes, the argument runs. If it snows you can always keep your Wellingtons on. What sort of people are they?
What is the life they believe in so passionately? In nudist resorts and at a nudist hotel Man Alive takes a frank look at the people who mean it when they say 'Take off your clothes and live.'

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
