The Other Max Headroom Shows
Here are some snippets of audio I pulled from (very old) videotapes of
Max Headroom non-movie, non-ABC "Max Headroom" shows on British TV and
Cinemax. These shows were great fun, and are almost unknown in "Max
Lore" -- so here's a bit of it! Note that there are some songs, they
were often broken up by other segments, I've combined them into one
recording. I apologize for the not-so-great quality of the audio, but
the source tapes were over 15 years old; it's something of a wonder
they had anything useful on them at all. (The ordering of the clips
isn't chronological within shows - does it matter, anyway?)
- From the Max Headroom Christmas Show, an hour-long special program.
I'm not sure if this came from the 'UK Max', or the 'Cinemax Max'
series (I lean toward the former).
- From the Max Headroom (UK) Show -- before the ABC TV
show, but after the movie, there was a chat-and-video
show on British TV (eventually shown on Cinemax, along
with Cinemax's own show - see below - part of their
'CineMAX' campaign). Here are some audio snippets
