Originally produced by Seventh Art in 2010.

If there is one genre of art that seems to have played a greater role than any other, it is the nude. For at least 30,000 years, humans have represented the naked form in a variety of ways. From the ideal to the real, the romantic to the surrealist, there have been almost no end of works devoted to the unclothed human body. This series - presented by writer and broadcaster Tim Marlow - will examine those artworks, the societies that produced them and the artists that made them. In this episode, The nude -The classical, Tim Marlow's main focus is the ancient classical world. He explores how and why the naked body was first depicted and goes on to show how the 'Venus de Milo' and the 'Venus of Willendorf' fit into the context of social and art history.
