(Video) A “Teleporting” Child on BBC News

A child recently appeared to materialize in a BBC news video, prompting many humorous comments on social media.

BBC viewers were left puzzled this week when a child appeared to teleport into a news report. Twitter user @realTewkesburyBC shared video of the bizarre incident online Wednesday…

Here are a few stills. The child appears in a few frames walking and holding the hand of an adult.


Just a video edit, most likely, but it is fun to speculate that this is anti-photobomb software at work. Removing and adding people in live videos has been possible for years, or so I’ve read. Such a technology may provide a safety net during live news filming so anyone walking into the frame is replaced by the solid background.

Better explanations welcome.

  1. It kinda looks like the video was edited the way the whole phrame jumps a little. They must have cut in footage that had the kid in the background. Continuity error.
