Was that newsreader climbing over his desk to get the pen actually broadcast? I've seen it so many times but I just find it so odd that anyone would do that live on air. It's just so... redundancy inducing!
It's not a newsreader, it's Tim Vine
doing a paper review. One of the things I love about that clip is the combination of suit, shirt, trousers.... and old white trainers
Here he is a few years later causing more trouble on BBC News: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-11063564
And same day, same studio, different comedian: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1MgQEmZoAw
