Man Alive - Hyde Park

First transmitted in 1971, John Pitman reports on a day in the life of Hyde Park, meeting the soldiers who live there, early morning Serpentine swimmers and other local characters.

First transmitted in 1971, John Pitman reports from Hyde Park, which was Henry VIII's former hunting ground. The park has now become home to early morning keep-fit swimmers, sailors and fishers of the sometimes frozen waters of the Serpentine, members of the Household Cavalry exercising their horses and the rather less formally attired civilian riders on Rotten Row, as well as fashion photographers, free speakers at Speakers' Corner and a vast army of other park lovers.
