The Max Headroom pirating incident 1987


An oldie but goodie! On November 22, 1987 WTTW (channel 11) in Chicago was in the middle of broadcasting an episode of Doctor Who when suddenly the signal was interrupted by a strange character wearing a Max Headroom mask. The pirated broadcast only lasted for 90 seconds but was something everyone who witnessed it live would remember forever!
