A screen grab of Robert Kelly's BBC interview that was interrupted by his two children. (BBC)

Little did professor Robert Kelly know that when he sat down for a BBC interview via Skype from his home office, it would turn into an internet sensation. In a matter of seconds, his two young children wandered into the live interview before their mother dashed in to take them away. For many of the roughly 25 percent of employed Americans who work from home, the video captured the daily battle of conducting business in the most personal of spaces. In this hour, we look at the pluses and minuses of working from home and hear tips on how to do it more effectively. And we'd like to hear from you: what are the challenges you face as a remote employee? What's made working from home successful for your company? Have you had a 'BBC Dad' moment?
