Racy videos banned from daytime TV

The video for the Miley Cyrus hit Wrecking Ball is too sexually explicit to be shown on daytime TV in France.

Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears are too racy for daytime French TV.

France's broadcast watchdog says TV channels should only show Cyrus' video for Wrecking Ball and Spears' video for Work Bitch after 10pm, when French broadcasters show a range of programming more suited to adults.

The watchdog, CSA, said in a statement yesterday that some channels were showing them in the daytime and without any parental guidance warnings.

Cyrus writhing naked around a wrecking ball is too sexually explicit, it says.

And Spears, with her bondage gear, shows "a sadomasochistic universe representing women in a way that risks shocking many viewers".
