On November 22nd, 1987, A TV pirate hacked into WTTW Channel 11 in Chicago, Illinois, to interrupt the broadcast of Dr. Who. He rambled on and on about random stuff, not making much sense. his words were hard to understand. We here at P.M. Productions have been interested in this clip for years, but have never tried to subtitle it…until now.

Then on November 30th, 2010, a Reddit user Posted an essay stating he believes he knows who was behind the hijacking. This is his essay here..

I believe I know who was behind the "Max Headroom Incident" that occurred on Chicago TV in 1987. A bunch of people have been asking me about this lately, so, I figured i’d do a coredump AM(almost)A. from IAmA

Enjoy.
