Prof Kelly feared BBC snub after kids hijacked interview

By Catherine Wyatt

The professor interrupted by his two mischievous children in a live TV interview said his first reaction was "mortification" and worry that the BBC would never call him again.

Professor Robert E Kelly was discussing the impeachment of South Korea's President Park Geun-hye on BBC World News on Friday when his two children gatecrashed the interview - which quickly became an internet sensation.

Speaking to the BBC again, Prof Kelly said: "We were worried actually that the BBC would never call us again.

"That was actually our first response, mortification that we had just sort of completely blown our relationship with you."
