Instant Classic Video – The perils of working from home…

A serious BBC interview with a Professor Robert Kelly, an expert on Korea, has gone viral online – after his young children interrupted him speaking live on air.

The video from the BBC shows Professor Robert Kelly talking about the high-stakes geo-political situation gripping South Korea, and about North Koreas use of WMDs – when his toddler bursts into the study wondering what his father is up to.

The BBC anchor then informs Kelly that a child has entered the room, as the interview continues.

As Professor Robert Kelly attempts to push his child away, in comes an even younger child in a rolling baby stroller.

The two children are followed by a woman (who presumably is their mother?)
