Britain's 'Calendar Girls' Are Back

Posted: Updated:
LONDON (AP) - A group of English women who posed naked for a calendar 10 years ago to raise money for cancer research are shedding their clothes again.

The women - whose first calendar inspired the movie "Calendar Girls," starring Helen Mirren and Julie Walters - have come out with a new 2010 calendar. It was unveiled Monday and is available online.

Like the last time, the women - who range in age from late 50s to mid-70s - are shown engaged in household activities such as gardening, baking and knitting.

They maintain their modesty by being partly concealed by items such flowers and knitting yarn.

The north England ladies got the idea for the first calendar following the death of one of their husbands from cancer in 1998.
