The Genius of British Art : Series 1 | Episode 3 - Flesh
As you may have noticed I'm not particularly interested in nudes. But this episode by Howard Jacobson celebrates the way British artists depict sex and desire, and argues that the most compelling expression is to be found where we might least expect it.
Includes a lot of Victorian paintings. No idea if it works outside the UK.
