May 2006 - Guy Kewney, a white, bearded technology expert was astonished to see himself appear on screen as a black man with an apparent French accent.
The BBC were interviewing "Experts" on the Apple Corps vs Apple Computers legal case. The producer mistakenly ushered Guy Goma to the News 24 studio after hearing his first name but perhaps believing "Kewney" to be a mispronunciation of his last name, Goma. A mic was attached and he was put live in the studio to answer questions.
In fact, Guy Goma was a business studies graduate from Congo-Brazzaville waiting for a job interview.
