F our miles outside St Albans town centre is a place called Spielplatz. One of the last remaining nudist resorts in Britain, it opened 90 years ago and staggers on under threat from developers, slowly falling into disrepair. In The Naked Village More4 , a film crew trod carefully around its 50 permanent residents hoping to observe a vanishing way of life. But what began as a film about nudism quickly became a melancholy document of a people terrified of progress. The naturists pride themselves on the lack of change within the Spielplatz walls, to the point where roof tiles and paintwork themselves are being stripped away to reveal the raw, rotting framework underneath. The modern world, represented here by shots of busy shopping precincts and young people goggling at their smartphones, is encroaching on the peace of Spielplatz as their slice of prime real estate is encircled by hungry property magnates.
