Nus et Culottées

Post by FrenchForumSurvivor »

An excellent series of alternative travelogues on France 5 every Monday. Two guys in their early 30s who start from one point in France totally naked, with 3 cameras and no money, with the plan to somehow make their way to somewhere else, with a purpose in mind. The first of tonight's two episodes was starting from the Creuse and getting to Brittany to meet a druid, the second was getting from the north of France and, with a caravan (that they had to find), caravan-stopping to Amsterdam.

It's all great encounters, human nature, and no pressure.

I enjoy that programme, too. It's been on a while now.

The first time we saw it was a couple of years ago and, for some reason, it didn't grip us then. Three weeks ago we tried it again and became hooked.

I find it very gentle and sometimes touchante. Les rencontres are quite genuine or as much as you could expect from a TV programme.

I love watching it and have done so for several years. Getting to Ibiza was fun, as was meeting Lord Bath At longleat, and I’m often amazed at the people who have room for them. It shows there are still lovely people in this world, and not just the ‘I’m all right’ brigade...

And Nans and Mouts seem to bring people out of themselves, like the Irish woman and her two sons last week.
