Uncensored nude dating show causes a stir after hitting Kiwi screens

first_imgNZ Herald 26 November 2017Family First Comment: Angry – AND frustrated and disgusted and concerned… The tv networks are racing to the bottom, and the BSA is asleep at the wheel.A reality TV dating show with full-frontal nudity has proven to be a turn off for some Kiwi viewers.TVNZ confirmed the broadcaster has received complaints about UK series Naked Attraction, which sees potential love interests introduced by gradually stripping bare in completely uncensored footage.Season one of the show has joined TVNZ 2’s Friday night line-up, with the first episode featuring an average of five penises and two vaginas every minute, according to the Daily Mail.A TVNZ spokeswoman said the show was unlike anything screened on TVNZ 2 before.“We feel that Naked Attraction is revealing and made to be entertaining.“As the programme contains nudity it is screened in a 9:30pm Adults Only time slot. It carries a clear content and nudity warning before broadcast, giving viewers the choice over whether they would like [to] remain watching the programme, or prefer to watch another TVNZ channel instead.”Lobby group Family First lashed out at the show earlier this month in a public letter to the Minister of Broadcasting Clare Curran titled “State broadcaster competes with porn sites for content”.National director of Family First Bob McCoskrie compared the show to porn and questioned why it was screened on a Friday night when children were likely to be watching TV.“Full frontal nudity has always been off-limits on television but it now seems that anything goes and that it is a race to the most offensive and shocking content possible. ‘Broadcasting standards’ is an oxymoron. ‘Family viewing’ should now be treated with great caution.”Family First said they had been “swamped” with complaints from families “horrified” at how the show has caused free-to-air TV standards to hit rock bottom.READ MORE: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/index.cfm?objectid=11947263&ref=twitterlast_img read more

Carrick backs Falcao

first_img Press Association Michael Carrick has backed Radamel Falcao to hit the goal trail and spearhead Manchester United’s title charge. Christian Benteke had put Villa ahead against the run of play before Falcao scored his second United goal to level. And England man Carrick believes the Colombian, who has struggled for fitness this season, is now ready to fire. “He’s scored so many goals over the years and you feel when he gets the chance he’ll score,” he said. “It was a terrific header, so I’m pleased for him. “After being out for a bit that’s him back and hopefully he can go on a bit of a streak now.” Wayne Rooney, who was deployed in midfield behind Robin van Persie and Falcao agreed and added: “It was a great run by Ashley (Young), a great ball and a great header. It was a nice goal all around and I’m pleased for Falcao.” But Carrick insisted the draw, which left United seven points behind joint leaders Chelsea and Manchester City and third in the Barclays Premier League, was not enough. “We came here to win so we feel we let two points go. We controlled the first half and went a goal down from nothing,” Carrick told MUTV. “We didn’t create enough around their box to be a real threat. The second half was better and we felt we could go on and win it but the final cross didn’t really go for us. “We felt we were in control of the game. When they went to 10 men we didn’t make the most of it. We tried things which maybe weren’t on so that’s a bit frustrating as we had the opportunity to put them under pressure. “We would hope for more but we didn’t lose, we took a point and hopefully we can carry it on over Christmas and be stronger when we come out the other side in January.” Rooney had a quiet game and could not hide his frustration after United struggled to break Villa down. “It’s important not to lose the game but we felt we did enough to win,” he told MUTV. “We missed an opportunity to get all three points so we are disappointed and frustrated.” But the midfielder admitted they blew their chance to extend their winning streak to seven games after drawing 1-1 at Aston Villa. United were held at Villa Park on Saturday, despite the hosts having Gabby Agbonlahor sent off with 25 minutes left. last_img read more
