LONDON (Reuters) - Saucy "Hey Nude" scenes had to be cut from a Sir Paul McCartney video to avoid it being banned from British television. McCartney combined with fellow former Beatle Ringo Starr to record "Beautiful Night" with Spud, a London school rock band of 16-year-olds. The video's director, Julien Temple, filmed actress Emma Moore disrobing and swimming naked for the video's closing scenes. They had to be cut out for the British television version, a spokesman for the singer said on Wednesday. "However another hot and uncut version of the Beautiful Night video will be available worldwide to television programmes who are not restricted by censorship or nudity," said spokesman Geoff Baker. Starr and McCartney had already reunited with George Harrison to make the Beatles anthology and record two tracks left by John Lennon, murdered in New York in 1980. McCartney and Starr both said they loved collaborating again for the new single timed for the lucrative Christmas market. "It was really good to see that Ringo and I locked in -- the Beatles rhythm section, drum and bass, we just locked in," McCartney said. Starr agreed: "We have all that history and it all comes into play when we play together. You just cannot dismiss that."
