I have no idea what licensing the iplayer has worldwide. Some countries seem to get it, others don't. From here  it says you can't get the iPlayer App in the US either. Would have thought that there was a way that folks in the US can watch current bbc programmes. 

Ah well, means you don't get Citizen Khan on a Friday night which is reason to rejoice.

Silver City Sun-News

Paul McCartney is sticking up for Miley Cyrus.

While doing publicity for his new record, Paul McCartney was asked by Sky News what he thought about Cyrus' controversial tongue-wagging, butt-shaking performance at the MTV Video Music Awards last month.

“Come on, we've seen worse than that,” the former Beatle said.

The 71-year-old McCartney said he had no problem letting his 10-year-old daughter watch Cyrus' twerking routine because, in his view, it was rather tame. 

“I watched it as an experiment to check, but you look at it and you say, 'What's everyone shouting about?'” he said. “I think it was only mildly shocking ... it wasn't explicit at all.”

Cyrus, of course, has come under attack from all sorts of people — including five open letters from Irish singer Sinead O'Connor, who believes Cyrus' behavior is degrading to woman and making her a record company tool. Among other critics, indie rocker Sufjan Stevens criticized Cyrus for her supposedly bad grammar in one of the tracks off her “Bangerz” album.

Right. It's a good thing all those other musicians pay attention to their industry-mandated English classes.

Since he was talking, McCartney talked about One Direction and the Beatles comparisons some insane people make. “I always think it's unfortunate for a band to be called the new Beatles because it can be the kiss of death.”

“People expect you to live up to what we did, and we did what we did in a particular period in time, which is very different from now,” McCartney said.

In other words, stop being stupid.

But then, because he's Paul McCartney, he offered One Direction some praise.

“But I like One Direction,” he said. “They're young, beautiful boys and that's the attraction. But they can sing and they make good records, so that's what I can see in common — and that the girls love them.”
