We still have a long way to go in 2017, but it would appear we have a leading candidate for TV interview of the year on our hands.

During an interview discussing the current affairs in South Korea following the ousting of President Park Geun-hye amid scandal, Professor Robert Kelly was merely trying to share his thoughts on the developments and what it means going forward on BBC News. Everything was going smoothly until a child opened the door and strutted in to see what was happening.

But that was just the beginning…

I am not sure if that is a spouse or nanny running in to try and save the day, but I can only imagine a few lessons will have been learned from this. First, if you are going to do an interview from your home office, you should probably lock the door next time. Second, if someone is supposed to be watching the kids while you are working, it may be best to have a backup plan in place. Maybe some baby gates?

We’ll applaud the effort though…

I will say I can sympathize with the man to some degree. I have done a couple of radio interviews in my home office and been interrupted by a whining dog that just wants to go outside. The joys of working from home.
