video imports

Anglo-American pop video represents a very small part of total audiovisual output in France, most notably in evidence on the cable music channels MCM and MTV. However, it forms an important part of the media consumption of many young people. Though listening to anglophone music is scarcely a new phenomenon in France, in 1994 the sensitivity of French elites to perceived Anglo-American domination in the audiovisual field and the alleged weakening of French cultural identity led the conservative government to include a minimum quota of 40 per cent francophone production in music output on radio (la loi Carignon).
