It’s never a good idea to watch not-safe-for-work videos while at the office. That’s doubly true when your work station is in the sight of a news camera.

The Telegraph newspaper of London reported Wednesday that the BBC is investigating an employee caught in the background of a “News at Ten” live shot watching what appears to be soft-core pornography on the computer.


While news presenter Sophie Raworth anchored the broadcast, a colleague in the background could be seen at his work station watching a video wherein a woman removed her top, exposing her bare breasts.

It’s unclear what the video in question was, but according to the Telegraph it appears to have been from an action movie.

While British tabloids are not shy about partial nudity — The Sun is infamous for its topless Page Three Girls — it’s safe to say things are more buttoned up at The Beeb.

The broadcasting company was “establishing the facts” of the matter in an internal investigation, the BBC said in a statement, according to the Telegraph.
