dc.description.abstractBroadcast Transcript: North Korea has a long-standing and deeply-rooted feeling of distrust in, well, pretty much the rest of the world. An accident at the preliminary women's soccer match between Colombia and North Korea in Glasgow last month did not help at all. Before the teams took to the field, the national flags were displayed on the jumbotron. Pretty standard. Except, ooops, they showed the South Korean flag instead of the North Korean flag. The North Korean team was understandably upset and the kick off was delayed for more than an hour. The National Olympic Committee apologized and the North Koreans went on to win 2-0. Where the North Koreans suspected a deliberate slight, a chain of British opticians saw a marketing opp and added the blunder to an ongoing ad campaign featuring embarrassing moments of mistaken identity with the tagline, "Should've gone to Specsavers." Oh say can you see? #ceas #northkorea #hacker
