Thirty years ago, South Korea's state broadcaster KBS decided to help reunite families separated by the chaos of the Korean War, and put together a live TV special with a 95-minute time slot.
The programme ended up over-running; not by hours, days, or even weeks, but by four months.
"Does Anyone Know This Person?" was the title of the special -- a seemingly innocuous question that KBS producers hoped might jog a few memories and, maybe, help bring some broken families back together.
