A Place to Live is an ITV schools TV series from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, covering Nature for primary and secondary school pupils.

  • natural history films, initially looking at things in and around an ordinary house and garden, encouraging children to carry out field work in their local area
  • later episodes went a little further afield to the woods and the seaside, and there were also programmes looking at Life in the Desert and Life in the Past
  • the series was broadcast in 1969-70 and 1970-71 with a suggested age range of 14 and 15 year-olds, but an expectation that it would be "acceptable over a much wider age and ability range"
  • after a three-year break the same films were broadcast again in summer 1973 with a suggested age range of 9-12
  • the series then took another three-year break and returned in summer 1976 suggested for 8-11 year-olds, including new episodes
  • the series then continued every summer term (and some spring terms) until summer 1989
