A job title that may prove to be a dinner conversation killer, well maybe not if you’re a contestant on Channel 4’s Come Dine With Me, but Andrew Welch is the British marketing director for Naturism. A rather difficult job when, as a nation, we tend to scorn at the idea of nudity and showing our bits in public.
Tasked with promoting naturism, Andrew launched his event, The Great British Skinny Dip, in the hope to sign new recruits to a greying society. With the idea being for venues across the country to get involved and host nude swim in September, the Channel 4 documentary follows his progress over six months as he meets with members of a very private society.
With teachers, kitchen assistants and even a former trade union officer getting behind the trend, Andrew has got his work cut out to convince even his girlfriend to get her kit off, let alone the rest of the general public.
