You may well have seen this but I think that it's very funny - illustrative of the dangers of working from home:

Hilarious how the woman closes the door at the end.

I was wondering if that woman might be the kid's nanny. If so, I also wonder if she still has her job.  :-\

One certainly hopes so ...

in the end, the BBC has also received worldwide advertising benefits from this very human interview, so they should all celebrate  ;D

Many thought the panic-struck woman was the nanny but actually she is the professor's wife:

I think his rather reserved, upper-class manner in that clip has also been facilitating the nanny associations.

Yes, I'm sure you're right. There has been some online debate about the fact that many (myself included) made the erroneous assumption that the woman was the nanny.

This is so great. How the girls with the yellow sweater dances into the room is priceless. And the tiny one cannot even really walk alone but of course follows the big sister in his roll-along-thingie (what are they called? I thought they fell out of fashion).
Very cute but it is understandable that he was embarrassed and acted somewhat reserved.

I think it's called a walker. Glad you enjoyed it.

They seem like a very nice family.

There are now spoofs of this appearing. I enjoyed this one:
