"A Beautiful Way to Live"  (1971) is a TV documentary about life in a commune, featuring novelist Cressida Lindsay and Commune Movement pioneer Sarah Eno. It visits two communes that were prospering back at the time in UK; The first, is a gathering of artists who live at a former school and the second commune visited at The Old Rectory Farm. This documentary explores why people choose to live in these so-called alternative communities and questions weather is the desire to escape from the pressures and materialistic nature of twentieth century life or just romantic idealism, and as well offer a view on the problems with living in large groups.
