The Max Headroom broadcast signal intrusion, as it is famous in TV history, occurred on November 22, 1987 in Chicago. It’s an example of television signal hijacking. The intruder managed to interrupt two TV stations just in three hours : the live Nine O’clock News on Channel 9 and a broadcast of the ‘Dr. Who’ series on PBS. When the program was suddenly interrupted a broadcast of a weird video took place : a man wearing a Max Headroom (a popular TV character from an ’80s science fiction show) mask appeared on the screen uttering random politically incorrect lines, giving the finger sign and taking his pants off and being spanked with a flyswatter by another person by the end of the 1.30min video. The hijackers were never identified.
