Graham Kerr was charming and entertaining as ever. He showed extreme grace when a photographer from the media barged into the middle of his presentation with her dog,shoving her camera practically into his face, oblivious of her thoughtlessness. He continued to display his good breeding afterwards, when the insensitive reporter asked him to pose for her with her dog.
